The Bioscape Team: Saving Nature Together

The Bioscape Team: Saving Nature Together

The New York Bioscape Initiative brings together a team of 36 Project Associates from 17 institutions, including personnel from universities, environmental organizations, and government agencies responsible for managing our natural resources. Team members have a variety of backgrounds and expertise, so that together they provide a multidisciplinary approach to the study of wildlife ecology and health. Working together their research strengthens our understanding of how the health of wildlife, ecosystems, and humans are related and makes possible the knowledge foundations for creating innovative solutions to our local environmental problems. maxatin action
