As part of our mission, Unit scientists teach graduate level courses, mentor graduate students, and provide continuing education for our cooperators. By combining teaching, research and technical assistance, the Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit provides students not only with an opportunity to pursue a graduate degree, but also receive unparalleled scientific training and applied work experience. By training the next generation of natural resource scientists, we enable the sound management of the nation's natural resources.
