Cities are the fastest growing ecosystem in the modern world.
Conserving biodiversity in developing urban regions is necessary to ensure the natural capital needed to support growing urban populations. This requires understanding how species, particularly native plants and animals that are essential to the health of surrounding ecosystems, persist in urban environment.
CBO works closely with a network of conservation, government agency and private sector partners to ensure that local biodiversity and wildlife is maintained. One highlight is our work to establish corridors in urban areas while still meeting the resource needs and lifestyle preferences of a growing human populations.
