The Cooperative Research Units Program is a unique collaborative relationship among federal and state agencies, universities, and a non-profit organization.
The tripartite mission of the Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit Program is:
- Train graduate students for professional careers in natural-resource research and management.
- Conduct research that will create new information useful for natural-resource management.
- Provide technical assistance on application and integration of new science.
The Nebraska Cooperative Fish & Wildlife Research Unit embraces the mission of the Cooperative Research Unit Program and contributes daily to the overall success of the Cooperative Research Unit Program.
Our students are involved in a wide variety of research, including diversity in ecological functions, invasive species, and habitats of various animals.
Wetlands of Nebraska: An Outreach and Education Project
The main objective of this project is to produce and distribute a series of integrated wetland outreach and education products to increase awareness of the importance of wetlands in Nebraska and an understanding of the need for wetland conservation. These products will provide up-to-date information about Nebraska’s wetlands, which will be aligned with the Nebraska Statewide education standards, and will deliver information in multi-media products that are favorable to today’s audiences.
