Since its inception, our Center has trained five post-doctoral fellows, six graduate students and dozens of undergraduates. Each student focuses on specific projects. However, everyone participates in all aspects of our Center’s overall program. We have also assisted numerous students and scientists in other programs around the world, including Central and South America, Africa, and First Nation indigenous people throughout North America.


Community Outreach and Education

In recent years, we’ve made education outreach a priority as part of our mission to create a better world for future generations, our education outreach programming brings field science into the classroom.

Our study areas allow us to increase awareness of conservation issues and efforts that we are currently undertaking. By broadening our geographic horizons, we can also develop relationships with local communities and cater education outreach to their specific interests and relatable topics.

We aspire to create a dialogue about wildlife conservation on a regional scale, and engage people in the fascinating world of their own native flora and fauna.

Along with our outreach programming with elementary, middle school, and high school aged children, we are also constantly invited to speak and give demonstrations at conferences and other events catered towards adults.

Our scent detection teams love to share the love of science. Please contact us for a quote for one of our teams to visit you.
