Welcome! Take a peek around. You might notice that we have been busy doing what we love: science inspired by nature, people, and place.

Please consider following our work on social media: Find us on Twitter and check out our YouTube channel and our media page.

The ACS lab is located on Coast Salish Territories, specifically of the Lekwungen and W̱SÁNEĆ peoples.


Our lab owes its existence to the foresight and investments of the Tula Foundation and the Raincoast Conservation Foundation, who invested in the first five years of our work (2012-2017). In 2017, Raincoast and its investors created the Raincoast Chaired Professorship in Applied Conservation Science, which will support our work until 2022, and potentially beyond.
