US Institutions Forming Partnerships with NCI
May/June 2009

Expanding reserach activities in NCI's reserves and generating income for conservation

Through the formation of partnerships with several US institutions and organizations, NCI will be able to expand research activities in its private reserves. During a recent visit by staff members from the San Diego Zoo’s Institute for Conservation Research, the researchers took note of the great importance of NCI’s recent conservation purchases in the tropical deciduous forests of southwestern Ecuador and are planning on beginning a research program within the private reserve to study the flora and fauna of this highly threatened ecosystem. Researchers will be returning in upcoming months to begin a quantitative assessment of the mammals, reptiles, birds and flora present within the reserve. Science faculty from the University of Western Kentucky also met with NCI staff in Ecuador recently to explore research and work opportunities for its students within NCI’s private reserves. This new potential relationship will be formalized over the next several months. Income from the use of its private reserves for research activities will supply NCI with additional funds for future conservation efforts.
