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 Arctic Tern can travel more than 49,000 miles every year as it makes its round-trip trek between the Arctic and Antarctica. In contrast, the Jemez Mountains salamander never moves more than 10 feet from its home. Scientists have long known that if you want to protect a species and its habitat, the first step is finding where it is and where it’s going. “Animals move in all sorts of ways and places and spatial scales,” says David Mehlman, director of The Nature Conservancy’s Migratory Bird Program. “To fully conserve them, we have to protect all the places they go.”
