The Conservation Ecology Center innovates tools and models to conserve species, landscapes and ecosystems in 38 countries across the globe. Its experts develop strategies to save species, including Asian elephants, giant pandas, scimitar-horned oryx, Przewalski’s horses, swift foxes and bison. Its scientists measure human impact on biodiversity and lead efforts to mitigate the effects of global development and climate change on the world's ecosystems.
The Conservation Ecology Center's 2018-2019 Annual Report presents an overview of the advanced technology and conservation initiatives that the team brings to bear to solve the global biodiversity crisis.
