Transformative and Actionable
Science to Improve
In Colorado, the CCC’s Associate Director Maria Fernández-Giménez co-leads a team of ranchers, conservationists, government land managers and researchers who seek to both improve ranching profits and conserve grassland birds by using a novel adaptive grazing management approach.
We have identified 140+ long-term collaborative and multi-stakeholder initiatives working across the state on many different kinds and combinations of natural resource and environmental issues. Our research continues on how and why collaboratives get started, and what organizational models they adopt to achieve their shared objectives.
In Alaska, we are working with Alaskan scientists as they work with local Inuit and Athabaskan communities to do truly community-driven science blended with Alaska Native knowledge on moose, salmon and berry harvesting.
