Newswise — BRI's mission is to conduct scientific investigations to better understand ecological health through the lens of animals. Every project we undertake is designed to advance our scientific research, which in turn helps create awareness, engage the public, and inform policy and management decisions.

This film by Jonathan Fiely and narrated by Carl Anderson introduces some of BRI's highlighted research areas: the impacts of mercury, oil spills, and wind energy development on wildlife. BRI scientists are available to provide journalists with information on the subjects they study.
