CCF Groups

Members organise groups representing a variety of special interests

Our groups organise seminars, social events, networking, training and more. Any CCF member is welcome to join a group. If you are interested in starting a new group, please speak to the Chair in the first instance.

Connectivity Conservation

The Cambridge Conservation Forum Connectivity Conservation Special Interest Group has been set up to help galvanize the discussion on connectivity conservation among members of the forum.

GIS (Geographic Information Systems)

The Cambridge Conservation GIS Group was established to bring together conservation GIS professionals and people with an interest in conservation and GIS in and around the Cambridge geographic area.

Management and Restoration

The CCF/CCI Management and Restoration Group (MARG) brings together site managers and others associated with habitat management to discuss solutions to conservation management interventions and restoration challenges and share good practice in the field.


The University of Cambridge has a significant history of major achievements in marine research. The lack of opportunities to capitalise on the wealth of marine expertise in the city, and for students, academics and practitioners to meet and learn from each another, was recognised in 2005 and led to the establishment of CCFMarine, which was approved as a CCF group by the CCF Council in December 2006.

Women in Conservation Leadership

The Women in Conservation Leadership Network (WICL) aims to support women in conservation leadership as well as those aspiring to these roles. Our two main focus areas are institutional change and personal empowerment.
