David Macdonald is interested in the scientific underpinning of practical and policy solutions to problems in wildlife conservation.

He founded and directs WildCRU, the Wildlife Conservation Research Unit, which aims to bridge the gap between fundamental biology research and policy on wildlife conservation.

Linkages between wildlife conservation and food include studies into reducing the total environmental impacts of agriculture; the impacts of organic farming on biodiversity; and bushmeat consumption in tropical forests and the impact on biodiversity loss.
