Relating changes in snowpack water equivalent and structure to migratory behaviour of the Bathurst Caribou herd
Principal Investigator: English, Michael C
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The objectives are to work with local residents of Wekweeti to understand how changes in the annual snowpack may impact caribou. The idea is that with increased incursions of warm southern air into the subarctic during winter that snow crusts and ice lenses may be created in the snowpack and as a result increase the energy expenditures of the caribou when foraging for food at the base of the snowp...


Impacts of wildfire extent and severity on caribou habitat
Principal Investigator: Baltzer, Jennifer L
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The objective is to improve the empirical foundations for predictive caribou habitat mapping within the forested areas of the Taiga Plains and Taiga Shield Ecoregions in NWT, roughly south of Great Bear Lake. A network of long-term study plots will be established across a range of fire characteristics and vegetation types, where the research team will measure the rate and direction of forest and c...


Sahtú Region Caribou and Moose Study
Principal Investigator: Simmons, Deborah L
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The main objective of this project is to support the wildlife management initiatives proposed by the Renewable Resource Councils (RRCs) in the Sahtú Region through the development of a robust research program that incorporates multiple sources of knowledge into a detailed understanding of caribou and moose populations. The objectives are to monitor caribou and moose health and understand populatio...


When do Caribou return?: Impacts of Wildfires on Todzi (Boreal Caribou)
Principal Investigator: Pellissey, Jody
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015
Summary: The long-term objective of this project is to document todzi sites associated with habitat that remain undisturbed and others where habitat has been burned by wildfires. The research team will focus on the research/monitoring questions of ‘when do todzi return to and stay in an area that has been burnt. The team is scoping places where todzi have been watched and hunted overtime. The team will...


Arctic Domus
Principal Investigator: Anderson, David G
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The research investigates the relations between dogs, fish, caribou and people. The objective is to have a different understanding of domestication and human-animal relations. This research will use semi-structured interviews and participant observation (spending time out on the land). Interviews: The research team will have 20 in-depth semi-structured interviews of one to two hours with Eld...


Investigation of changes to the Porcupine Caribou Migration Route
Principal Investigator: Charlie, Bella D
Licenced Year(s): 2015
Summary: The objective is to study the changes to the Porcupine Caribou migration route and the effects of increased hunting using the Dempster Highway (located in the NT and YT). The Principal Investigator will video record interviews with Elders and traditional harvesters in Fort McPherson. Interviewees will be ask about how their hunting skills, locations and methods have changed over the past 30 yea...


Baseline Monitoring of Arctic Vegetation and Snow Changes over the Bathurst Caribou Habitat using Satellite Remote Sensing and Community-based Field Observations
Principal Investigator: Chen, Wenjun
Licenced Year(s): 2014 2013
Summary: The goals of this research project are: 1. To fill the information gap on Bathurst caribou summer range conditions using satellite remote sensing data and community-based ground vegetation monitoring 2. To develop a cumulative impact assessment method that makes cumulative impact assessment possible even if data are incomplete and provides timely feedback for guiding the refinement of monitoring...


Building capacity and documenting traditional knowledge on Species at Risk in the Gwich’in Settlement Area 2012- 2014
Principal Investigator: Benson, Kristi
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012
Summary: The proposed two-year traditional knowledge (TK) study focuses on gathering Gwich’in traditional knowledge of three species of special concern- wolverine, grizzly bear, and woodland caribou - northern mountain population. The TK studies will be led by a Gwich'in Species at Risk (SAR) TK Committee, which will direct the projects and allow information to flow from federal and territorial bodies to c...


Lichen Sampling Program - Diavik 2013
Principal Investigator: Wells, David A
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2010 2005
Summary: The aim of this research project is to determine whether dust generated from mining activities is causing a measurable change in dust deposition to and/or metals uptake in lichen closer to and further from the mine. If a significant difference in uptake is noted closer to versus further from the mine, a health risk assessment to caribou may be conducted to determine risks associated with consumpti...


Shifting stories, changing places: transformational narratives of climate change in northwestern Canada and Alaska
Principal Investigator: Van Wyck, Peter
Licenced Year(s): 2012
Summary: This research looks at how northern communities and environmental groups have deployed “public storytelling” to influence public policy in two particular instances related to northern food security and climate change: (1) protection of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge lands as calving grounds of the Porcupine caribou herd and (2) regulation of industrial activities in the Arctic Ocean as these ...
