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.

The Maine Event
By Scott Weidensaul
Last year was a heart-breaker in Maine. SNOWstorm had two enthusiastic partners in the Pine Tree State — the Biodiversity Research Institute, and the federal APHIS Wildlife Services staff, which was kept busy the past two years trapping and relocating snowies at Maine’s airports.
BRI generously underwrote a GPS transmitter — and in the weird, frustrating way these things sometimes happen, almost the moment CTT shipped them the transmitter, John Wood and the Wildlife Services crew suddenly couldn’t catch an owl for love or money.
