Our Vision for Applied Science:
Decision-makers, including members of the public, require relevant, reliable, timely and understandable information to address environmental problems and opportunities.
High-quality information often takes the form of evidence derived from scientific research.
Seeking, generating and receiving evidence cannot be separated from the value systems of those involved.
Therefore, in all our work we strive to:
1) acknowledge and apply our core values: conservation, social justice, Indigenous rights, animal welfare, and informed advocacy;
2) engage diverse partners – especially Indigenous communities – in our research;
3) develop and implement creative, targeted, compassionate and collaborative research connected to our core values;
4) communicate new knowledge and contribute to positive environmental change in the real world.
