The Institute for Applied Ecology conserves native species and habitats through restoration, research and education.  We work closely with our public and private partners to implement science based restoration and provide place-based educational programs and materials.  We work primarily in the Pacific Northwest and Southwestern US, but some of our efforts are international.
