Wisconsin Wildlife About Us


Three neotropical birds: Magnolia warbler, Wilson's warbler, Canada warbler that were caught in a mist net for banding.

The major objectives of the Wiscosnin Cooperative Wildlife Research Unit are to conduct and direct research related to the solution of problems of mutual concern related to wildlife and their habitats; direct and guide the training of students in wildlife science at the graduate level and provide in-service training for agency employees; supply technical advice and assistance to Federal, State, and private conservation agencies in the management of wildlife resources; provide conservation education through publications, correspondence, lectures, and demonstrations.

The operations of the Unit are governed by a formal Cooperative Agreement signed by the four formal cooperators. Unit offices are located on the University of Wisconsin Campus in Madison. The Leader and Assistant Leader of the Unit are, by appointment, members of the Graduate Faculty at the University of Wisconsin.
