NRCC has thirty-three research associates engaged in ecological and policy research, educational activities, and hands-on intervention in natural resource conservation programs and policy making. Most of NRCC's research associates work for other organizations: nongovernmental organizations, government agencies, and universities. Their affiliation with NRCC gives them a wider range of opportunities to carry out more integrative, interdisciplinary, conservation work. Our people combine broad practical experience with rigorous academic training, and they bring a variety of insights from disciplines ranging from conservation biology to policy sciences.
