The tradition of wise management of natural resources in the United States is a source of pride for Americans who are concerned about the future of our fish and wildlife. The U.S. Geological Survey's Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit program supports this tradition by providing the Nation with applied research and a continuing source of well trained professional managers. Through a creative partnership of Federal and State governments, universities, and the private sector, a unique avenue exists for conducting research that addresses complex environmental issues across virtually every North American ecological community. The Cooperative Research Unit works toward three goals:

Conducting research on fish and wildlife problems of state, regional, and national interest
Training graduate students for careers in the fish and wildlife professions
Providing technical assistance to state and federal managers and researchers
