About Us

Finding Porpoise is curated by the students of BZ430—Animal Behavior and Conservation at Colorado State University. The blog aims to inform a diverse readership about the importance of animal behavior as it applies to conservation. We are in the midst of a biodiversity crisis and are currently destroying wildlife habitat at unprecedented rates. It is our hope to highlight new directions proposed by the field of conservation behavior and discuss how researchers are incorporating the behavior of animals into our understanding of effective conservation practices. We are excited for your feedback and look forward to a lively discussion in the comments of our blogposts.
