Partnerships & Collaborations

Below you can see a range of different organisations that form part of our community.

These include like-minded organisations, global networks of Natural History and Natural Science Museums, Botanical Gardens, and research centres as well as international organisations with an interest in research on taxonomy and biodiversity, the protection of species and ecosystems, the sustainable use of biological resources, or tackling broader environmental issues and societal challenges.  We complement and enrich each other by enabling the flow of scientific information, and fill in existing gaps, including on training, educational, managerial and policy issues. CETAF is part of this global community with the aim of using scientific knowledge to enhance the benefits of science for humankind.
