  • Continue and grow the volume and quality of research in applied evolutionary ecology and conservation.
  • Contribute and develop critical analysis, ethical interpretation, conceptual clarity, and philosophical examination of applied research in evolutionary ecology and conservation.
  • Build collaborative partnerships with researchers from other academic, government and non-government institutions as well as industry to properly conceptualize and mitigate the effects of human activities on biodiversity loss using evolutionary perspectives.
  • Create synergies by sharing intellectual, human and research resources that will lead to enhanced research outcomes.
