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.
