Wildlife Conservation Society, New York, NY c96 (2300 Southern Boulevard Bronx, New York 10460 718-220-5100, Phone: 718-220-5100, E-mail: clehn@wcs.org). Headquartered at New York City's Bronx Zoo, the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) works to save wildlife and wild lands throughout the world. For more than a century, WCS has inspired care for nature, pioneered environmental education programs, and helped sustain biological diversity. The Society's Science Resource Center (SRC) helps researchers assess data through computer mapping, ecological analysis and cutting-edge molecular genetics. The SRC was established in March 1994 as an information and scientific learning hub for the Wildlife Conservation Society. The SRC’s mission is to provide technical resources to WCS staff so that they can fully integrate cutting-edge information, science and technology in their work saving wildlife. SRC's projects that utilize GIS include A Framework for Identifying High-Priority Areas for the Conservation of Tigers in the Wild, Patagonia Coastal Zone Management Plan, and Integrated genetic and GIS analysis of Old World Monkeys (Family:Cercopithecidae) of South Africa: Implications for management and translocation: South Africa.

The Wildlife Society (5410 Grosvenor Lane, Suite 200, Bethesda, MD, 20814, Phone: 301- 897-9770, Fax: 301-530-2471, E-mail: TWS@Wildlife.org). The Wildlife Society (TWS), founded in 1937, is an international non-profit scientific and educational association dedicated to excellence in wildlife stewardship through science and education. Its mission is to enhance the ability of wildlife professionals to conserve diversity, sustain productivity, and ensure responsible use of wildlife resources for the benefit of society. The Wildlife Society encourages professional growth through certification, peer-review publications, conferences, and working groups.
 
Wolf Education and Research Center Ketchum, ID c96 (418 Nez Perce, P.O. Box 217, Winchester, ID, 83555, Phone: 208-924-6960, E-mail: wolfcenter@rmci.net) The Wolf Education and Research Center is dedicated to providing public education and scientific research concerning the gray wolf and its habitat in the Northern Rocky Mountains. The Center will provide the public with the rare opportunity to observe and learn more about the wolf in its natural habitat. It is our goal to be an inclusive organization that offers factual and balanced information. We seek to enhance public awareness of threatened species in the region and to develop in concert with residents ways to coexist with these species. The Center is using GIS to collect, access and utilize accurate information relevant to the management of public lands and the restoration of wolves to the Rocky Mountains. It has undertaken a long term monitoring project in the Bear Valley region of Central Idaho, in the heart of historic wolf habitat where cattle grazing and hunting are primary uses of this public land. Using GIS, the Center maps wolf movements, grazing allotments and wildlife activity in this valley using vegetation as the basis of the ecosystem.

Woods Hole Research Center, Ma e94 . (see under ECP Feature Stories) (P.O. Box 296, Woods Hole, MA, 02543-0296, Phone: 508-540-9900, Fax: 508-540-9700, E-mail: info@whrc.org). The Woods Hole Research Center addresses the great issues of environment through scientific research and education and through applications of science in public affairs. It uses remote sensing and GIS to study the major forested regions of the world - the tropics of South America and the boreal forests of the former Soviet Union. One of its long-term goals is the production of a Global Forest Inventory - a measure of current global forest extent and composition and global terrestrial carbon sequestration - that will help monitor future changes in the world's valuable forest resources. An early step toward this goal is its Spatially Explicit Map of Forest Stand Carbon for Russia. Don't miss their Electronic Atlas of Cape Cod.
