The Fisheries, Wildlife and Conservation Biology program at NC State University is a leader in fish and wildlife science and takes an interdisciplinary approach to education and research. We employ cutting-edge research and work with a variety of partners to ensure common fish and wildlife species remain common, and threatened and endangered fish and wildlife species are saved. Students and faculty work across colleges and disciplines throughout NC State University to gain knowledge and conduct innovative research that identifies and solves challenges to conserving animal species around the world.
The Fisheries, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology area at NC State focuses on researching and understanding ecological principles as they apply to natural resource management as well as the subsequent effects on wildlife, fisheries and aquaculture. Our mission is to advance the scientifically-based conservation, management and use of fishery, wildlife and associated resources. This focus in reflected in the emphasis our graduate students place on identifying and resolving important questions ranging from fundamental scientific inquiry to technical, applied, management-oriented problems.
