In total, BfN has a staff of around 430. The agency is divided into six policy directorates, each of which is responsible for a different nature conservation policy area. Our staff contribute expertise here in all nature conservation disciplines, including biology, geography, agricultural, forestry and environmental sciences, economics and law. A seventh directorate, Administration, provides the policy directorates with support functions such as budget, procurement, staffing and organisation.
