ScienceSand Lake, as a part of the Fish and Wildlife Service, participates in traditional wildlife and habitat monitoring to better understand an ever-changing ecosystem as well as apply cutting-edge management strategies.

Science sets the foundation for how fish, wildlife, plants and their habitats are managed at Sand Lake National Wildlife Refuge. In cooperation with other researchers, universities and science-based organizations we have created a broad-based platform in our ecological research to implement management strategies that are best suitable for entire landscapes and ecosystems, rather than a single species.


For more information on conducting studies or obtaining information on past and present studies, please contact the Sand Lake headquarters.
