The Northern Rockies Conservation Cooperative (NRCC) advances conservation for the common good by generating reliable knowledge, fostering effective leadership, and enabling innovation.


Since our founding in 1987, NRCC has built a community of problem solvers, each of whom is committed to a shared goal: conservation for the common good.

We began as a small team of researchers looking for ways to create smarter conservation alternatives and launch innovative projects.

Over the last 33 years, we’ve grown to a team of 60 researchers, conservation leaders, educators, and students. Our projects are diverse—yet our focus remains the same: empowering current and emerging leaders to implement practical, integrated, and inclusive conservation work.
