Research, Engagement, and Guidance

Kahiltna Research Group is a collaboration among professors and researchers at various universities and at government agencies. Originally housed at California State University Long Beach, at present, there is a branch associated with the Centre for Wildlife Ecology at Simon Fraser University, Canada.


Its mission is to:

  • conduct basic and applied research on timely and ecologically important topics, focusing on marine ecology
  • engage scientists from many different countries in ecological collaborations
  • provide guidance and training for graduate and undergraduate students
  • provide knowledge and personnel to non-profit, government, and other agencies in their ecologically-related research and goals

The degree of Master of Science or Master of Arts at California State University Long Beach can be obtained on projects supervised by Dr. Baird as the thesis advisor through Kahiltna Research Group. Likewise, credits in Special Topics in Biology or Directed Research, Biology 490 and 496 at CSULB can be obtained by working on projects of the Kahiltna Research Group.
