The Helsinki Lab of Interdisciplinary Conservation Science (HELICS) is an interdisciplinary team with expertise in conservation science, geography, computer science, social sciences and economics. We develop methods and analyses that can help investigate human-nature interactions to inform conservation policy-making. We carry out global to local analyses, by integrating traditional and novel digital data sources. We are interested in finding sustainable solutions that can support both biodiversity and people. HELICS was established in April 2019.
