Audubon scientists' research programs include studies in reproductive physiology, endocrinology, genetics, embryo transfer, and the expansion of a “frozen zoo” to ensure the future of endangered species through the banking of genetic materials. The research team at Audubon Center for Research of Endangered Species has been globally recognized for work with in vitro fertilization, cryopreservation and embryo transfer for wildlife conservation.
The knowledge gained through research at the Research Center will help scientists and conservationists cope with threats to the most seriously endangered species by developing new reproductive technologies and reintroduction techniques necessary to ensure their long-term survival. Understanding that species survival can be achieved only if everyone works together, the Research Center regularly collaborates with the University of New Orleans, Louisiana State University, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, habitat preservationists, zoos and other captive animal managers in its global mission to preserve wildlife for the future.
Research Center scientists include:
- Dr. C. Earle Pope
- Dr. Stanley P. Leibo
- Dr. Martha C. Gomez
