Berkeley Wildlife is driven by a group of core faculty and staff as well as a large and vibrant community of postdoctoral researchers, graduate students, and undergraduates. A number of affiliates and partners, both on and off our campus, participate in and contribute to the Program.

In recent years, the core faculty and affiliates have trained approximately 20-25 graduate students and 10-15 postdoctoral scholars annually. We benefit from close affiliations and collaborations with a large group of faculty affiliates. New affiliates are welcomed with the expectation of participating in our community, including the weekly seminar and other community-building events.  

Berkeley Wildlife is a problem-driven group and we benefit immensely from deep partnerships on and off campus. On campus, for example, we interact extensively with the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology, Institute for Parks, People and Biodiversity, and the Eric and Wendy Schmidt Center for Data Science and Environment (DSE). Our off campus partnerships take a variety of forms from informal collaborations, to formal research partnerships and MOUs with federal and state agencies, tribal nations, NGOs, and foundations. We welcome interest from prospective partners who can help us utilize our research capacity to address questions and challenges that are meaningful to communities and could lead to beneficial outcomes.
