UConn to partner with town of Greenwich on ecology study


Storrs, Conn. (WTNH)- The University of Connecticut is partnering with the Town of Greenwich to study the ecology of Long Island Sound as the region confronts the environmental challenges of the 21st Century.

Among the issues to be explored include climate change, clean water, the loss of biodiversity and sustainability.

The environmental faculty at the Greenwich Conservation Commission and Shellfish Commission will pool resources with UConn’s Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and Center for Environmental Sciences and Engineering on the project. Officials point out that Greenwich, located on the western Long Island Sound is the perfect location to undertake this kind of a research project.
