The Washington Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit (WACFWRU) is one of 40 comparable units within the United States established to facilitate cooperation between the Federal Government, colleges and universities, the states, and private organizations in improving the management of the nation’s fish and wildlife resources. Units accomplish this by conducting natural resource management research, educating persons to intelligently manage natural resources, and providing research findings to individuals or agencies that put this information to practical use.
