South Dakota Cooperators

Each of the 40 Units in the Cooperative Research Unit Program is a partnership among the Biological Resources Discipline of the U.S. Geological Survey, the Wildlife Management Institute, a state natural resource agency, and a host university. This partnership meets annually at the Unit Coordinating Committee Meeting to identify cooperator needs, set research priorities, and to discuss the direction of the Unit.
