The Vermont Center for Ecostudies advances wildlife conservation with the combined force of scientific research and community participation. Our biologists study birds, insects, amphibians, and other wildlife from Canada to South America. Enhancing our work is a legion of community scientists and naturalists. What VCE discovers about wildlife and conservation we share with scientists, policy makers, conservationists, and the general public. We publish research in peer-reviewed scientific literature. Our project reports help inform public policy. And our growing body of knowledge about biodiversity is a free public resource for anyone who seeks to discover and enjoy wildlife – from school children to birdwatchers.
