At the La Kretz Center, our team works together to organize our activities and bring our results to the broadest possible user group. We receive input and guidance from our Advisory Board, a select group of individuals representing both UCLA and our partner organizations. Our Affiliates are a broader group of conservationists who help us recruit the best possible postdoctoral scholars, advise graduate student grants, and constitute the core interests and strengths in conservation science that define the Center.
