The McDowell Sonoran Conservancy and the School of Earth and Sustainability (SES) at Northern Arizona University (NAU) are partnering on a new conservation practice research program. In this program, students at SES work on projects with the Conservancy’s Parsons Field Institute through internships and group capstone projects to give students access to unique opportunities to bridge science and natural resource management. Over the coming weeks we will share updates from these students on their projects by providing links to research posters.
The poster Conservation Plans of Endangered Flora and Fauna in the Sonoran Desert was presented at the virtual symposium for International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).
The Spring 2020 edition of Mountain Lines included an article on the partnership between the Conservancy and the SES if you would like more details.
