The mission of PDX Wildlife is to conserve species and habitats by producing innovative, high-quality research and educating communities about their natural resources.
How do we achieve this mission?
- Implement focused conservation initiatives at the LOCAL level that promote and support wildlife, habitat, and biodiversity conservation at the GLOBAL level.
- Incorporate the newest innovations and cutting edge research into our conservation projects.
- Develop and conduct innovative in situ and ex situ wildlife research to identify critical conservation issues and provide creative solutions to managers and fellow scientists.
- Educate local communities and strengthen their ability to conserve and benefit from their natural resources.
In a world that is changing rapidly, not all species and habitats can adapt quickly enough to survive. Dwindling suitable habitat, a rapidly changing climate, and an unprecedented number of anthropogenic threats to the natural world make it more imperative than ever to develop sustainable, innovative ways to protect our natural resources.
Our vision is to protect and restore species and habitat diversity for future generations through our local and global wildlife conservation initiatives. Together with the help of our sponsors, donors, collaborators and individuals around the globe, we are able to pursue these objectives through a dedicated team of scientists located in Portland, Oregon who conduct and implement research on 3 different continents.
PDXWildlife focuses on using scientific research and community outreach to promote the conservation of imperiled species and habitats. We accomplish this through creative, innovative approaches to field-based and captive wildlife research, habitat assessment, and community education. Now is the time to make conservation a global priority through such initiatives.
