The loss of biodiversity is one of the greatest global challenges, and creating solutions to combat it is one of our research strengths.

UQ is ranked #1 in the world for biodiversity conservation (Center for World University Rankings by Subject 2017).

Our dynamic research group comprises multidisciplinary conservation scientists who have expertise in ecology, decision science, environmental policy, mathematics, social science, economics and spatial modelling.

They lead the Centre for Biodiversity and Conservation Science and have key leadership roles in the National Environmental Science Programme Hub for Threatened Species Recovery and the ARC Centre of Excellence for Environmental Decisions.

A significant strength is our ability to work with government, non-government and industry partners to influence national and international conservation policy.

With a philosophy to integrate research and training with end-users, we achieve global recognition for the quality of our conservation science and impact.
