Borderlands Research Institute at Sul Ross State University

Location: WEST, Texas

The Borderlands Research Institute (BRI) for Natural Resource Management was created in 2007 by partnerships between Sul Ross State University, private landowners, and government organizations. The mission of BRI is to help conserve the natural resources of the Chihuahuan Desert Borderlands through research, education, and outreach.

The goal of the Borderlands Research Institute is to provide land managers with the most current scientific information on the management of natural resources of the area. To meet this goal, the Institute plans and conducts research investigations on various aspects of the natural world and provides the results to the land managers so that they may more effectively manage the resources with which they are entrusted. The Borderlands Research Institute will continue with the tradition of natural resource conservation at Sul Ross by focusing their research efforts on three interrelated emphases: 1) ecology and management of wildlife and their habitats, 2) rangeland management and restoration, and 3) conservation biology.
