The purpose of the David H. Smith Conservation Research Fellowship is: To create opportunities for leading conservation scientists to strengthen their skills through two years of applied post-doctoral research, supplemented by training programs, peer networking, and field learning experiences; so that they may: 1. Build productive partnerships with conservation practitioners; and 2. Contribute and communicate scientific knowledge to problems of critical importance in conservation.

The focus of Smith Fellows’ research and activities should be characterized by:

Extreme heat, when temperatures are much hotter than average over consecutive days, is an increasing problem for all parts of the United States. Steadily increasing temperatures due to climate change are intensifying already higher temperatures in heat island areas, where buildings, roads, and other infrastructure absorb and re-emit the sun’s heat more than natural landscapes. Warmer temperatures in heat island areas can also lead to increases in air pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions, including higher concentrations of ground-level ozone and fine particulate matter.

Civil Society Organizations operating in and around forested areas are some of the most effective champions of forest conservation and management. However, they frequently lack the resources or knowledge of how to incorporate the latest forest-monitoring technology into their research, advocacy, and field work. The Small Grants Fund provides financial and technical support to organizations around the world to use Global Forest Watch’s tools and data to turn forest monitoring information into action.
