We bring together ecology, social science, and Indigenous ways of knowing
We work with a range of partners and collaborators across western Canada to facilitate applied research and provide scientific expertise. Our work is used to support the recovery of endangered wildlife species and sustain populations in the face of increasing pressures. We are relied upon as trusted brokers of evidence in complex and sensitive policy decisions.
Our aim is to understand the drivers of change for wildlife populations; track changes in their habitats; and disentangle the complex interactions between species, disturbances, and climate. Restoring wildlife populations and habitat costs time and money—we provide the evidence needed to make effective, efficient decisions.
