In today's world, native ecosystems and species, are being impacted every day by both our actions and inaction in the face of increasing challenges.  For over 15 years, EMRI has been developing innovative tools and strategies to restore and conserve our native heritage for future generations.

Healthy ecosystems and their associated fish and wildlife populations are intrinsically linked to our well-being and our quality of life.  Caring for our environment takes careful planning and commitment to ensure we are protecting all the pieces before they are lost to us forever.
