LENS combines imaginative research and narrative experimentation with data analysis and visualization. The diversity and cross-disciplinary character of our community is central to this mission. In step with UCLA’s location in the multiethnic and multilingual Los Angeles basin, our faculty, students, and collaborators view the future of conservation and the environment as interconnected with issues of equity and justice.
