Membership is open to not-for-profit organisations, and institutions, including governmental bodies, and universities involved in conservation policy, practice and research; organisations that have a statutory requirement to protect the environment and 'for profit' organisations for which the main objective is the promotion of biodiversity conservation. Individuals with an active interest in conservation research, policy or advice but who are not in a member organisation may become Individual Members simply by registering to receive our newsletter.

Cambridge Conservation Forum currently has more than 70 members.
