A typical project progression

Each of our research projects has a similar process.
Below is a description of each of the stages:

  • Evaluate proposed legislation and perform initial analysis of project feasibility

  • Identify and choose data sources, evaluate and collect bioregional data, contact possible partners in State/area and alert Advocacy Team of potential project

  • Produce spreadsheets and perform data analysis

  • Enter the results into GIS system and develop bioregional maps and graphic displays

  • Evaluate all results and produce reports 
in coordination with the Advocacy Team

  • Pass report to Advocacy Team for 
meeting with elected officials on legislation
