The FRB was created in 2008 and brings together public research organisations, environmental protection associations, space and biological resource managers and companies. The mission of the Foundation for Biodiversity Research is to support and act with research to increase and transfer knowledge on biodiversity. It is a focal point between science and society for the challenges facing biodiversity research today.

The MTE is the state department in charge of preparing and implementing the government's policy in the fields of sustainable development, the environment, in particular the protection and enhancement of nature and biodiversity, green technologies, the energy transition and energy, climate, the prevention of natural and technological risks, industrial safety, transport and its infrastructures, equipment and the sea. Within this department, the Water and Biodiversity Directorate (DEB) is responsible for designing, evaluating and implementing policies concerning water, natural areas, and terrestrial and marine biodiversity. The meaning of its action consists in seeking a relevant territorialization, an increased transversality between the various components of ecological quality, a development of expertise to serve decision-making, the integration of environmental issues as early as possible in development or urbanization projects and the reconciliation of daily actions of exploitation and anthropization of the territories with the objectives of protection of the environments and recovery of their biodiversity

The OFB (French Office of Biodiversity) focuses on knowledge and expertise on all components of nature. It contributes to the exercise of administrative and judicial policies relating to water, natural areas, wild flora and fauna, hunting and fishing. The OFB accompanies and supports public actors in the design, implementation and evaluation of their policies, and socio-economic actors in their activities in favor of biodiversity. It also manages and restores protected areas, marine areas and terrestrial protected areas.
