The Western Pennsylvania Conservancy applies the best available science to biodiversity conservation, including the protection and restoration of the habitats relied upon by the region’s native flora and fauna.
WPC’s scientific work falls into three categories:
Inventory and assessment of biodiversity, which includes the mapping, tracking and evaluating of the state’s species and natural communities;
Conservation theory and applied science, which guides planning and on-the-ground protection activities of conservation targets at a variety of scales; and
Stewardship science, which manages and, if needed, restores the land and water relied upon by native plants, animals and natural communities.
