Nevada Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit
Welcome to one of the newest Cooperative Research Units to be located at the University of Nevada, Reno!
Nevada will become the 39th state to create a Cooperative Research Unit. The Nevada Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit is a partnership with the U.S. Geological Survey, Department of Interior, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, University of Nevada, Nevada Department of Wildlife, and the Wildlife Management Institute.
The Nevada Cooperative Research Unit will include three scientists employed through the USGS who will have adjunct faculty appointments to the University of Nevada, Reno. Based on the University campus, the program will focus on wildlife research, ecology, and management, and will promote collaboration among the participating partner organizations. In addition, the program will support a focus on human dimensions and the importance of wildlife conservation to the public’s overall quality of life.
Stay tuned for more information as the Nevada unit comes together!
