BRI Staff
The people behind the science help write BRI's story. Our staff members are hardy souls who endure long hours in all manner of weather and conditions. From office staff to wildlife biologists, we recognize all of them for their dedication to BRI's mission and their passion for conservation. Ultimately, we all win when they are successful. For most, their work is not a job, but a deliberate way of life.
