Dr Leon Bennun

Technical Director, The Biodiversity Consultancy

Before joining The Biodiversity Consultancy in 2014, I was the Director of Science, Policy and Information at BirdLife International, co-ordinating the BirdLife Partnership’s global work in these areas. I have worked extensively in the field in East Africa, focusing on institutional and capacity development alongside applied research and practical conservation. I am particularly interested in the application of science to policy, and in making biodiversity information accessible and meaningful to decision-makers.
