BEARWATCH: Monitoring Impacts of Arctic Climate Change using Polar Bears, Genomics and Traditional Ecological Knowledge.
Principal Investigator: Lougheed, Stephen C.
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: This research will integrate and map polar bear knowledge systems and translate findings into a community-based monitoring protocol that will track polar bear population responses to environmental change. Research questions include: 1) Are polar bear science data, existing Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK), and historical records from the fur trade, explorer’s personal accounts and government...

Polar bear traditional knowledge for the Beaufort Sea
Principal Investigator: Maraj, Ramona
Licenced Year(s): 2011 2010
Summary: Local and traditional knowledge will be collected related to the population status of polar bears, and the influence that climate change has had on polar bears and their habitat in the Beaufort Sea. The information from interviews will be used to develop a description of acceptable management practices and management goals for polar bears and compare this information to science-based information ...

Inuvialuit Perspectives of Polar Bear Population Health and Harvest Sustainability
Principal Investigator: Slavik, Daniel VW
Licenced Year(s): 2010 2009 2008
Summary: The objectives of this research are to document Inuvialuit knowledge, perspectives, and observations of factors that influence polar bears population health on Banks Island and in the Beaufort Region; and explore how traditional knowledge, community observations, scientific studies, and other information interact to inform hunters about sustainable harvest levels of polar bears. The researcher ...

Licence #2304
Principal Investigator: Stirling, Ian
Licenced Year(s): 1978
Summary: To conduct aerial surveys of ringed and bearded seals and polar bears to assess these species' ability to recover and the rate of recovery after a marked decline in survival rate during 1974 and 1975....
