About Us

The Global Wildlife Conservation Center (GWCC) was established to tackle the urgent conservation challenges facing wildlife and their habitats through collaborative research projects across the world. The GWCC is an initiative of SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry and currently directed by Dr. Jerrold Belant, Camp Fire Conservation Fund Professor.

At the GWCC, we conduct applied science to preserve global biodiversity and ensure sustainable use through partnerships with international national, state, and tribal agencies and organizations. By training the next generation of wildlife conservation scientists, the GWCC is ensuring that Earth’s wildlife and associated habitats persist long into the future.


A planet where both humans and wildlife thrive.


To provide science to promote wildlife biodiversity and sustainable use.
