The Whitefish Lake Institute (WLI) is a science and education based 501(c)(3) non-profit led by a small, dedicated staff, volunteer board of directors and advised by a Science Advisory Committee. WLI is not an advocacy organization—instead we conduct research and provide scientific data to help citizens and resource managers make informed decisions. WLI accomplishes its work through three key platforms, Science, Education, and Aquatic Resource Initiatives. Within these three focus areas, we establish programs appropriate to achieving the goals of our mission. WLI is funded by memberships, grants, special events, and through programmatic partnerships with other organizations and resource agencies.
