Our core team leverages decades of experience that crosses many disciplines and sectors.

We came together to imagine and practice new ways of doing conservation science – of exploring, understanding, and supporting the living world. The “Partners” in Conservation Science Partners represents our view of our staff, colleagues, and clients as respected and equal partners in the pursuit of creative but meaningful and impactful work. Most of us came from academia, and many of us still stand with one foot in that world. Into our shared spaces we each bring unique sets of tools, perspectives, and worldviews – from a range of sciences; from our other lives in music, art, antique and scrap hunting, gardening, climbing, photography, woodworking, cycling; from our families, cultures, and deeper histories – from the full scope of our imaginations. We each love finding new ways to see the world and surprise each other. Welcome to the CSP herd!

In addition to our core science staff, many other support personnel sustain CSP as an efficient and agile operation.
