Conservation in action

Finding solutions to natural resource challenges around the globe.


Research. Education. Outreach.

We put science to work to understand how ecosystems respond to natural and human pressures, as well as help create and maintain healthy and sustainable ecological systems in arid and semi-arid regions around the world. The School of Natural Resources and the Environment offers invaluable opportunities in and out of the classroom, engaging students in real-world experiences through state-of-the-art facilities, like the Santa Rita Experimental Range and the University of Arizona Biosphere 2.
