The Campus Biodiversity Initiative: Research and Demonstration (CBIRD) is an interdisciplinary collaborative of SEEDS Program networks, projects, and research that supports biodiversity plans, policies, strategies, and actions at the UBC Vancouver campus.

Find out more about who’s involved, what we do, and how you could join in. 

WHO WE ARE

CBIRD is led by a Steering Committee based on interdisciplinary collaboration. Our committee includes biodiversity stakeholders from 17 UBC departments and operational units who provide high-level oversight and guidance to CBIRD. 

Through the extended networks of the committee’s individual members, the Steering Committee helps advance interdisciplinary relationships across faculty and operational units.
