      Overview

      Through this partnership, CI provides ASU with opportunities to translate research into action to produce real-world conservation solutions. ASU provides CI with a wealth of research capacity and the opportunity to interact with, train and influence young leaders in conservation.

      All too often, a lack of collaboration between researchers and practitioners results in the valuable research from world-renowned academic institutions not informing work in the field. This “research-action” gap presents a missed opportunity to not only maximize the collective brainpower tackling critical conservation issues, but to enhance our understanding around the effectiveness of conservation practices. What is working, what isn’t and how we can realize the transformative conservation impacts we aim to achieve? Together, CI and ASU are positioned to address these questions.​
