BRI news stories have appeared in many regional, national, and international news outlets. These stories help promote awareness of our work but also promote the general issues of conservation biology and the need to continue research in wildlife health and its implications to human health.

BRI's researchers are available to talk to journalists and provide expert information on both the work we do and the broader topics of their expertise.
