Boston University

A brief summary of additional ways the institution collaborates with other campuses to advance sustainability :

Primary activities are associated with research and education and the main goal is to better understand nature so that appropriate and effective conservation strategies may be implemented. Consequently, scientists are constantly conducting research on a wide array of topics ranging from cataloging the regional mega diversity to animal behavior to global climate change. A large proportion of efforts are dedicated to environmental education of students in organized groups that come for relatively short visits.
