Diversity staff with turtle

The wildlife diversity program frequently takes on special projects usually focused on research and data collection or the conservation of an imperiled species.  Some of these projects are short term and volunteer-driven like the 5 year Breeding Bird Atlas project while others are long-term and require a lot of staff and time such as the Multi-species Inventory and Monitoring Project.

There are also projects with a primary focus on a particular species such as the Peregrine Falcon RestorationOsprey Restoration, Trumpeter Swan Restoration, and the Prairie Chicken Project.  The ultimate goal of all these projects is the conservation of Iowa’s natural resources.
