About Us

The Wildlife and Fisheries Conservation Center is comprised of UConn faculty, adjunct faculty members who work within the wildlife and fisheries divisions of our state’s natural resources agency, and graduate and undergraduate students who conduct scientific research to better understand wildlife and fish populations and the ways they are interacting with human society.

Established in 1996, the Wildlife and Fisheries Conservation Center has as its mission to combine the important elements of understanding wildlife and fish biology, the habitats they occupy, and the consequences of interactions with humans to inform management decisions that affect the future sustainability of fish and wildlife populations. The Center uses rigorous scientific approaches to provide reliable information related to the sustainability of populations and traditional consumptive uses of wildlife and fishes, as well as to emerging issues such as global climate change, toxicological effects of contaminants, and exurban and suburban wildlife conservation.
