Ecostudies Institute’s conservation and research programs support its mission by using scientific study as one means to advance conservation of birds and their habitats. We initiate and develop our conservation and research programs in several ways. Perhaps the most common is through partnerships and collaborations with other conservation organizations and governmental agencies. In partnership, we can often be more effective and influential by combining the experience and expertise of a variety of groups to develop comprehensive solutions to conservation problems. We also develop conservation programs independently when we believe that we have unique expertise to offer or when we identify important problems in conservation that are not being addressed by others.
We work in many different geographic areas, and on many different conservation problems. At present, our research is primarily focused on reintroduction ecology, population dynamics, effects of management, wildlife inventory and monitoring, species-habitat relationships, and studies of avian life history.
