Creating a New Generation of Conservation Science Leaders
Our world faces unprecedented challenges with climate change. NatureNet Science Fellows help solve them.
A pursuit of The Nature Conservancy and leading research universities, the NatureNet Science Fellows program is a trans-disciplinary postdoctoral fellowship aimed at bridging academic excellence and conservation practice to confront climate change and create a new generation of conservation leaders who marry the rigor of academic science and analysis to real-world application in the field.
Research and the Real World
NatureNet Science Fellows work on groundbreaking research to address climate change, the most pressing conservation challenge of our time. Now in its third year, the NatureNet Fellows program pushes conservation science into entirely new areas that embrace existing and emerging technologies and disciplines, from nanotechnology for clean water and energy, to DNA-based genetic analysis to inform land management.
Forest Management Can Keep Carbon in Forests and Protect Communities from Wildfire in the American West
The U.S. is investing billions of dollars to reduce forest fire risks. New research maps the hot spots where investments in strategic forest management could offer the biggest payoff for people and climate.
New research from Borneo shows that the soundscape of a forest changes significantly following selective logging.
Protecting logging concessions could be a valuable tool for biodiversity conservation.
By scientists for scientists: a set of practical steps scientists can take to increase the odds their research will reach decision makers who could use it.
A new study examines flooding from Hurricanes Matthew and Florence and finds current hazard maps are inadequate for accurately assessing flood risks and protecting communities in North Carolina.
New science shows that remnant forests with the greatest tree-species richness also store the most carbon, creating a potential win-win for protecting biodiversity and reducing global carbon emissions.
