Academic and Scientific Institutions

Academic and scientific institutions are leading collaborators in biodiversity science, conservation, sustainable use and benefit-sharing. Universities, research institutes, museums, zoos, aquariums, and botanical gardens are some of the best places to explore biodiversity and related issues. Many institutions are open to the public and lead programs and events that promote knowledge exchange and effective action to protect biodiversity.

From multidisciplinary research collaborations and natural history collections to campus greening initiatives and biodiversity day celebrations, academic and scientific institutions across the country are actively engaged in protecting Canada's biodiversity.
