Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center, Biological Resources Division, U.S. Geological Survey, U.S. Department of the Interior

Data Center Description
The mission of Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center (NPWRC) is to provide
the scientific information needed to conserve and manage the nation's
biological resources. The Center's goals include the following:

Evaluate responses of fauna and flora to natural and anthropogenic influences

Develop tools for assessing status and trends of animal and plant populations

Use integrated, long-term research to model linkages among ecosystem components

Develop the biological knowledge needed to sustain and restore ecosystems

Provide the scientific foundation for federal policies and management
strategies related to natural resources

Disseminate the latest in technical information and research findings to client
agencies, conservation organizations, and others responsible for the management
of our Nation's natural resources

NPWRC strives for quality, integrity, and the credibility of its research. The
company came to be on September 18, 1965. The Bureau of Sport Fisheries and
Wildlife conducted research on waterfowl production, which established the
Center. In November 1993, under the advisory of the NBS, the mission was
broadened to include research on all biological topics of the Department of the
Interior land-management bureaus. The strengths of the Center include a sound
foundation established by past research findings.
