Media & Communications

About Us

The CBG Media and Communications Team uses an integrated approach to communications to promote the Centre for Biodiversity Genomics and the International Barcode of Life Consortium and share information with researchers, government, industry, donors, future and existing students, staff, faculty, alumni, colleagues at academic institutions around the world, and the general public.

We work as a team to offer strategic communications planning advice on new research projects and programs, events, communications-related service for special projects – such as editing external marketing materials and websites, branding and design, creating and editing content for the Barcode Bulletin and the CBG internal newsletter, photography and videography services and more.
