Ben Sacks Mammalian Ecology and Conservation Unit

The primary mission of the Mammalian Ecology and Conservation Unit is to conduct research that advances both the persistence of wild mammal biodiversity and our basic understanding of mammal evolution and ecology. In this context, we are also an educational entity, providing opportunities for graduate, undergraduate, veterinary student and post-doctoral research. We collaborate internationally and locally with other academic investigators and work closely with state, federal and local agencies to facilitate applied conservation and resource management.
