The Wildlife Conservation Research Unit (WildCRU – part of the Zoology Department) was founded by Professor David Macdonald in 1986, and is now recognised as the leading university-based institute for wildlife conservation research. WildCRU’s approach is to combine empirical field research with conservation actions rooted in sound science, and its research is used worldwide to advise environmental management and policy.

Currently WildCRU has around 60 projects, extending from the Scottish Highlands to southern Africa and the forests of Borneo.
