Save the date: Public Participation in Scientific Research Conference

At Miistakis, we envision a world where communities have genuine access to the science and research they need to make choices that promote healthy landscapes.

We study the landscape, so we can help people conserve it. And we work to make innovative research accessible to communities and decision-makers. In all cases, our approach is the same: identify the need, define the problem, solve the problem.

The communities we work with can be landowners and their networks, any level of government, visionary corporations, leading edge scientists, environmental NGO's - anyone in need of science-based support for practical, sustainable, resource management decision-making.


Ecosystem Services in the Crown

The Round Table on the Crown of the Continent, a forum that brings together people who care about this ecosystem, wanted to understand who in the Crown of the Continent Ecosystem (CCE) was approaching conservation work through an ecosystem services lens. They also wanted to understand if and how the Round Table could support further application of this approach. At their request, Miistakis surveyed the Round Table mailing list and highlighted eight current programs to illustrate real world applications of the approach. The resulting report documents that while a more in-depth understanding of the approach is needed, the majority think there is value in applying an ecosystem services approach in the CCE.
