WHAT WE DO

The Field Museum’s rapid inventory team champions the world's unprotected biological and cultural diversity. We explore some of the richest places on Earth in search of large-scale conservation opportunities — landscapes that local peoples want to keep healthy and vibrant for generations to come — and then provide the scientific support needed to protect and manage these areas.
