Conservation of Military Landscapes
Military lands are home to more Endangered species than National Parks. Working within the Avon Park Air Force Range Sentinel Landscape, we combine research, demographic monitoring, and applied conservation to improve habitat and population management for Threatened and Endangered species including the Florida Grasshopper Sparrow, Florida Scrub-Jay, and Red-cockaded Woodpecker.
