The goal is to enable human beings to live in harmony with other species. Institute programs strive to increase our understanding of natural systems through basic, innovative scientific research incorporating GIS to develop Conservation Area Designs for analysis and education. The Yellowstone-to-Yukon region and the Northwest Rainforests are our areas of focus. The program focus is to ensure that decisions affecting wildlife and wild landscapes are based on the best available scientific knowledge and are not compromised by political expediency. The Institute's work is directed towards the conservation of carnivores and their habitats. Conservation Area Designs (or reserve designs) are a combination of art and science applied to landscapes and human activities using GIS. An overview of the GIS program is available here.
