Wildlife is telling us the state of our planet. We listen. We take action.
Wildlife and wild places enrich human life. Just as canaries alerted coal miners to dangerous air quality, ecosystem sentinels alert us to natural or human caused environmental changes. We train the next generation of scientists and make a positive contribution to sentinel species and their habitats.
Our biannual newsletter will keep you up-to-date on conservation efforts and current studies.

Here is what one of the world experts on handedness, Leslie Rogers, had to say about a paper published by Center scientists Dr. Rebstock & Dr. Boersma on May 20th: “To my knowledge, this is the first paper reporting lateralization of behaviour and structure in penguins. It is a comprehensive study and will make a valuable comparison to the study of lateralization in birds and other vertebrates.”Dr. Rebstock & Dr. Boersma
