The Conservation Management Institute is an active partner in the management of natural resources in Virginia, across North America, and around the world. Institute project teams comprised of research faculty, staff, and students engage resource management agencies and organizations to understand their objectives and constraints in order to produce quality solutions through hard work and the application of sound science. Our researchers employ a range of skills, knowledge, and talents with particular strengths in field ecology, geospatial information technology, resource assessment, and logistical support.

CMI  works with a variety of partners, including state fish and wildlife agencies, federal refuges and parks, private conservation areas, and military installations.
