Management Connections

Given that biodiversity has many impacts on humans (and vice versa), we seek out opportunities to directly translate our research to conservation and management contexts. Beyond yielding practical results, addressing management questions also often offers unique chances for ecological insight. In the past we have conducted work on the emerging Kellet's whelk fishery in California, and current connections include working with the Billion Oyster Project to determine how to rear and place oysters so they have the best chance of survival in New York waters. We also have an interest in developing a better way of discussing reintroduction progress and outcomes.
