RESEARCH OPPORTUNITIES

Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary offers scientific research opportunities to national and international university students studying veterinary science, conservation biology, wildlife conservation, environmental science, education studies or related degrees. We encourage students to conduct their bachelor and master’s thesis research here at the sanctuary. We have opportunities for admissions data analysis, GIS hotspot mapping (for electrocutions and wildlife-vehicle collisions), community perception research, diet analysis, behavioral studies, and post-release monitoring. Students are required to email to discuss the feasibility and logistics of their idea and include a research proposal.
