The Center for Marine Biodiversity and Conservation at Scripps Institution of Oceanography is a center of interdisciplinary cooperation in research and education. CMBC receives no state funds and operates on donations from concerned citizens and project grants.
Faculty from UCSD departments of Economics, History, Communications, Anthropology, Political Science, Graduate School of International Relations and Pacific Studies, California Institute for Information Technology and Telecommunications (CALIT2), Rady School of Management, San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) and Southwest Fisheries Science Center (NOAA Fisheries) partner with CMBC to link biological, physical, social, and environmental programs. Collaboration with these partners and scientists from other academic institutions, government agencies, industry leaders, and conservation organizations around the world, provides for a novel integration of disciplines as we seek technically sophisticated, regionally appropriate strategies to prevent and reverse biodiversity collapse.
