Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Units Program: Arkansas
Education, Research and Technical Assistance for Managing Our Natural Resources

Arkansas Education Activities


A juvenile armadillo has recently emerged from its burrow for the first time - the Arkansas Cooperative Research Unit is studying the animal communities that rely upon Armadillo burrows across all of Arkansas.

As part of our mission, Unit scientists teach graduate level courses, mentor graduate students, and conduct workshops for our cooperators. By combining teaching, research and technical assistance, the Arkansas Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit provides students not only with an opportunity to pursue a graduate degree, but also receive scientific training and applied work experience.

Students in the Arkansas Unit Program can pursue a M.S. or Ph.D. degree through the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville. Students working with Brett DeGregorio generally pursue projects in avian ecology or herpetology while students working with Dan Magoulick generally pursue projects in aquatic ecology.
