The World Ecology Bureau was a global environmental organisation based in England, headed by Sir Colin Thackeray. When a scientific expedition in Antarctica informed the Bureau of their discovery of a Krynoid pod, Sir Colin summoned the Fourth Doctor to investigate. Bureau employee Richard Dunbar sold information about the pod to Harrison Chase. (TV: The Seeds of Doom)

The World Ecology Bureau continued to maintain files on the Doctor and in the 21st century contacted UNIT to gain access to the space-time telegraph to contact the Eighth Doctor for assistance in their investigation of Alex Marlowe and his research into Krynoids. (AUDIO: Hothouse)

Behind the scenes Edit

  • According to The Terrestrial Index, the World Ecology Bureau was formed at the same time as UNIT and for the same reasons, but this is never indicated on-screen.
