Since 1991 Round River has been partnering with native peoples, conservation organizations and government agencies to gather ecological information to engage in planning to accomplish meaningful conservation.
We have gathered ecological information and engaged in conservation planning in the Blue Range of Arizona, the Great Bear and Muskwa-Kechika of British Columbia, the Northwest Territories, the tropical forests of Belize, and the Yaak Valley of Montana.
Today our conservation efforts in North America are focused in northwestern British Columbia, northern Yukon Territory, in the canyons and forests of Southern Utah, and the mountains of central Idaho and western Montana and Wyoming.
For each of these project areas we employ the principles of conservation biology to formulate strategies to give our partners a well-founded scientific basis for their long-term conservation planning efforts. Our project areas are chosen because:
- they contain relatively large areas of intact wild lands with unique compositions of species, including many endemics;
- they are threatened by resource extraction and unsustainable development; and finally,
- favorable conditions still exist to improve conservation education, and strengthen long-term conservation plans and sustainable resource use through local community involvement.
