Welcome to Cambridge Conservation Forum (CCF)

***** CCF HOTDESKS NEWS *****

  • We now have a dedicated desk space for CCF members in the Leventis Library, housed in the David Attenborough Building.  Please use the book system as usual - see the button the right hand side of this webpage.
  • CCF members will be welcome to use the work stations in CCI shared spaces, especially the Common Room and on the 3rd floor outside the Library, but will be requested to note their intentions on the CCF Google Docs booking form in the usual way and to let CCI Services Reception know, when signing into the DAB on arrival.
  • As a new option, CCF members will be able to book a small meeting room (normally the Baobab Meeting Room or, if not available, an equivalent) for working purposes and for meetings for the sole use of staff and volunteers from CCF member organisations for periods of up to two hours.  This will be bookable by contacting the DAB Reception Desk reception@cciservices.co.uk 

Cambridge Conservation Forum's purpose is to strengthen links and develop collaborations across the diverse community of conservation practitioners and researchers based in and around Cambridge working at local, national and international levels. Over 60 organisations based in the Cambridge area, whose primary focus is the conservation of biodiversity, are currently members of CCF including non-governmental conservation organisations, government agencies, university departments and consultancies. CCF is a founder member of the Cambridge Conservation Initiative (CCI), which grew out of long-standing collaborations between Cambridge Conservation Forum member organisations. These organisations remain important contributing members of CCF, as well as forging more formal working arrangements in collaborative projects as part of the CCI.
