Headquarters Cooperators

Northern Pintail Drake at Colusa National Wildlife Refuge

Each of the 40 Units in the Cooperative Research Unit Program is a partnership among the U.S. Geological Survey, the Wildlife Management Institute, one or more state natural resource agencies, and a host university. This partnership meets annually at the Unit Coordinating Committee Meeting to identify cooperator needs, set research priorities, and to discuss the direction of the Unit. State and university cooperators also play a key role in staffing their unit.
