The Center for Conservation Biology (CCB) is a research and education non-profit organization. Our mission is to ensure the viability of bird populations within the mid-Atlantic region.
In order to accomplish this mission, we integrate complimentary disciplines that we consider to be the three “cornerstones” of conservation.
We conduct basic and applied research focused on the functioning of mid-Atlantic ecosystems. We strive to select projects that not only fill information needs but also serve as catalysts to increase public awareness and stimulate related work within the region.
We educate the public about the conservation and significance of our natural resources. We also distribute significant research findings and information to educate resource planners and promote informed, responsible decision-making.
We initiate and develop comprehensive strategies for the conservation and preservation of mid-Atlantic resources and ecosystems. In addition, we assist local, state, and federal agencies in identifying the condition and distribution of sensitive coastal resources.
