Grimsö Wildlife Research Station
A centre for wildlife and landscape ecology in central Sweden
Research at Grimsö is focused on wildlife, landscape and conservation biology. Our research objectives vary from basic research to applied management questions. We apply and distribute new ecological information to increase the possibility of preserving biological diversity and a sustainable utilization of wildlife and forest resources. We also inform and educate at many levels in all these subjects.
Grimsö Wildlife Research Station was founded in 1974 as an ecological research station. In 1992, Grimsö became a section of the Department of Conservation Biology at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, SLU.
The Swedish Wildlife Damage Center is also located at Grimsö. The Wildlife Damage Center informs and educates authorities and farmers about damages on livestock and crops caused by protected wildlife.
Our website will guide you through our main research topics, present our staff, station facilities and also present our unique research area of 14,000 ha.
