Sir David Attenborough is in Cambridge today to open a new campus which he hopes will help save the planet.
The hub will be home to more than 500 conversation experts who'll research ways of tackling climate change and protecting species around the world.
The future of our life on Earth is dependent on the natural world – for the air we breathe, the food we eat and the water we use – and for the feelings we have of awe and wonder at nature’s extraordinary riches.
In this remarkable age we are learning more and more about the intricacies of our dependence on nature.
Yet our natural world is threatened as never before. The threats are both numerous and interrelated, and no one institution, however effective, can hope to address them all alone. It is for this reason that the work of the Cambridge Conservation Initiative is so exceptional.
By bringing together leaders in research, practice, policy and teaching, we stand the greatest chance of developing the solutions required to save our planet.
