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. In Africa, South America and North America our wildlife conservation study abroad programs are designed to involve small groups of students in ongoing research projects that are finding and implementing solutions to real conservation and environmental issues.
The efforts of these students contribute significantly to the larger conservation initiatives of Round River and our local partners.
