Conservation Science

A Rocha is committed to the conservation and restoration of the natural world through both scientific research and practical conservation projects. Our scientific work provides the strong foundation needed for informed protection and management. Our conservation projects are aimed at slowing or reversing the trends of habitat loss that are affecting many species. In practical terms, this means we are lifting binoculars skyward to conduct bird surveys, removing invasive species in order to restore salmon streams, and collecting data on a myriad of species in BC, Manitoba and Ontario.

At A Rocha we appreciate the strong connection between a healthy environment and the health of the human community. Therefore, where possible, we work with local landowners and residents to understand their concerns and collaborate with them in the good act of stewardship.
