In the Peery Wildlife Ecology and Conservation Lab, we use cutting edge ecological, genetic, and population modeling approaches to provide managers and policy makers with information needed to make science-based decisions about the conservation of endangered wildlife.
We focus on providing pragmatic solutions to challenging endangered wildlife problems – solutions that maintain viable populations while allowing for sustainable resource use.
We work with a variety of animal species and in many different habitats; projects include Spotted Owls and Marbled Murrelets nesting in old-growth forest ecosystems, wetland turtles in Wisconsin, and two- and three-toed sloths in a tropical agro-ecosystem.
A common objective across these projects is to identify limiting environmental factors and develop strategies for ameliorating threats to endangered wildlife. As such we work closely with a number of state and federal agencies nationally and internationally.
