We have collaborators across the globe with major hubs in Australia and Canada reflecting Tara’s long-standing work in both countries.

In Australia we are partners in the ARC Centre of Excellence in Environmental Decisions (CEED) and National Environmental Research Program – Research Hub for Environmental Decisions (NERP) work closely with colleagues at the University of Queensland Hugh Possingham, Jonathan Rhodes, Kerrie Wilson, James Watson, Eve McDonald-Madden and University of Melbourne Mark Burgman, Mick McCarthy, Brendan Wintle and many other researchers within CEED and NERP. We also continue to work closely with my former research group, CSIRO’s Conservation Decisions Team Josie Carwardine, Iadine Chades and Sam Nicol.

In Canada at the University of British Columbia we work with Peter Arcese, John Richardson and Sally Otto among others, Carlton University Joe Bennett and Richard Schuster,  University of Guelph Ryan Norris, and University of Victoria Julia Baum and Eric Higgs

In France, we work with the mathematics and computer science department at INRA (Fred Garcia, Regis Sabbadin), and conservation ecology group at CNRS (Jean-Louis Martin).

We collaborate with researchers from various conservation NGOs including Conservation International (Chris Margules), The Nature Conservancy (Hugh Possingham, Eddie Game), Australian Wildlife Conservancy (AWC, Sarah Legge) and The Wilderness Society (TWS), and the Wildlife Conservation Society (James Watson).

We also work closely with the IUCN (International Union for the Conservation of Nature) through Tara’s role as Climate Adaptation theme leader in the Climate Change Specialist Group.
