As part of our mission, Unit scientists teach graduate level courses, mentor graduate students, and conduct workshops for our cooperators. By combining teaching, research and technical assistance, the Idaho Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit provides students not only with an opportunity to pursue a graduate degree, but also receive unparalleled scientific training and applied work experience.

Students in the Idaho Unit Program can pursue an M.S. or Ph.D. degree through the College of Natural Resources at the University of Idaho.
