Conservation Ecology

The Conservation Ecology Program at INR aims to conserve biodiversity for the benefit of natural and human communities by conserving a portfolio of priority species, protecting biodiversity across ecosystems, and collaboratively resolving contemporary conservation challenges. Our work involves:

  • Applied field research
  • Empirical modeling
  • Science synthesis
  • Collaborative partnerships
  • Science-based conservation solutions
