Interplanar Biodiversity Initiative Organization in Melior | World Anvil

Interplanar Biodiversity Initiative

An organization dedicated to the research and conservation of balance in merged planar ecosystems.

The Interplanar Biodiversity Initiative is a world renowned organization dedicated to the research and exploration of diverse ecosystems in other realms. The Initiative was founded in Caldura just three months after The Rupture and initially started out as a local group of ten folks trying to document the influx of new creatures and invasive flora that had come through the rifts and into Rengia.   Now a global organization, the Initiative is led by an expansive team of esteemed scientists, explorers, and researchers, their work revolves around documenting and preserving the balance of combined foreign and local ecosystems and working with local governments to keep residential and agricultural areas safe.  
At the Interplanar Biodiversity Initiative, we are dedicated to the exploration, understanding, and conservation of diverse and extraordinary ecosystems found across multiple planes and realms. Our mission is to foster a deeper appreciation for the interconnectedness of life and to safeguard the unique flora and fauna that thrive in these otherworldly landscapes.   Through rigorous scientific research, responsible documentation, and sustainable practices, we strive to protect the delicate balance of interdimensional biodiversity while promoting cross-dimensional harmony and knowledge exchange. By bridging the gap between realms, we aim to inspire awe, preserve natural wonders, and unlock the secrets of the universe for the betterment of all.
— Mission statement [1]

Hazardous Acquisitions Unit

  The Hazardous Acquisitions Unit is a branch of the Interplanar Biodiversity Initiative that deals with the deadliest creatures and plants (often in the most hostile environments). They are known to work alongside military organizations to help survey areas and provide insight on natural hazards of unexplored realms.   Due to the occupational hazards of this line of work, this branch has some of the highest paying jobs in the Initiative and includes a very generous family bereavement package. Joining the Hazardous Acquisitions Unit involves signing a lot of paperwork, including a company-bound will and a statement of secrecy.   Training for a position involves intensive study and training in the specialist fields surrounding ecology, and also in first aid, field surgery, combat and weapons training, and mechanics.

I has a quick question - if the Planar Biodiversity Initiative is dedicated to the research and exploration of diverse ecosystems in other realms... shouldn't be called "Interplanar" (between, amid, among)   Apart from that <3

Very cool concept. I have something similar in my own mish-mash of biology from different worlds called the "Anomalous Forest." I wrote it my first year on World Anvil, so it's due for a rewrite. This will be a great reference when I get to it.

I came to the comment section to mention that the "very generous family bereavement package" gave me some inspiring ideas.   I ended up clicking the "reveal spoilers" box hoping to find something there related to the comments and... now I'm thinking to much, probably in the right time, but also a little sad.

Ohnooo :<   I'm glad at least that the first half of the article sparked some inspiration!
