Protect and understand the UK’s natural habitats

Biodiversity is the key to our continued existence on this planet. The Centre for Ecology and Conservation (CEC) at the University of Exeter’s Cornwall Campus is conducting cutting-edge research into the processes that shape life on Earth, building a better understanding of how we can deal with the pressures that an increasing human population place on the natural world.

That research is key at home and abroad. Exeter researchers help protect local ecosystems and engage young people and communities with the natural world. From supporting citizen science through to reintroducing native species to the wild, Exeter research is making a difference.
