Round River Conservation Studies is an ecological research and education organization whose goal is the formulation and implementation of conservation strategies that conserve and restore wildness. We recognize that flourishing wildness and wild places are important in, and of, themselves.
Employing the principles of conservation biology, we formulate strategies to give our partner communities, organizations and governments a well-founded scientific basis for their long-term conservation planning efforts.
Round River believes landscapes are powerful educators. Our student programs are designed to involve small groups of students with inspiring people and actual research projects that are finding and implementing solutions to real conservation issues. The student programs contribute significantly to the larger conservation initiatives of Round River and our local partners.
