The objective of the project is to identify the fish species present, and to gather population data on surveyed species, in waterbodies in the area of Husky’s proposed exploration activity.
Four streams and four to seven small lakes are proposed to be assessed. The Cumulative Impact Monitoring Program recommended selecting 2-4 streams appropriate for collection of baseline information that can...

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...

Caribou populations fluctuate over long time spans. However, long-term records of population cycles are scarce. Dendrochronology and hoof scars left on the surficial roots of spruce trees across caribou trails will be used to reconstruct the population...

Caribou populations fluctuate over long time spans. However, long-term records of population cycles are scarce. The population dynamics of the Bathurst and Beverly caribou herd across the Northwest Territories will be reconstructed using two proxy indic...
Principal Investigator:Dowlatabadi, Hadi Licenced Year(s):
The overall objective of this project is to provide a set of tools to estimate the cumulative impacts of a development project based on its power as an "attractor" to subsequent development. The researchers will make a short visit to Yellowknife to talk...
Principal Investigator:Poniatowski, Brian Licenced Year(s):
The community monitor will carry out monitoring of wildlife, principally caribou, which are of great importance to the Lutselk'e First Nation. This will be done by directly observing their numbers, sex of animals (if this can be determined), age, condition, movements and behaviour in relation to Kennedy Lake camp and to specific worksites, such as sites where drilling or till sampling are being ca...

Fish populations in Fish and Raddi Lakes, located in the vicinity of Sachs Harbour, will be surveyed to determine their population characteristics. In addition, arctic charr will be collected for genetic analyses and assessment of physical differences in charr of the region. Tissue samples will be collected for future contaminant studies....
Principal Investigator:Stephenson, Tasha Licenced Year(s):
This project will involve the collection of data on the harvest of walrus in the Foxe Basin area. Measurements will be taken on the walrus harvested and tissue samples will be collected for the purpose of assessing contaminant levels in tissues. Hunters from Igloolik and Hall Beach will be trained in sampling techniques and the local Hunters' and Trappers' Associations will be contracted to carr...

Since 1983, Word Wildlife Fund has supported research on the bowhead of Isabella Bay. This research, representing the first ever conducted on this species, has identified Isabella Bay to be one of the most important habitats for bowhead in the eastern arctic. The whales use the area to feed, socialize and shelter them from killer whales. The researcher will continue his study of bowhead behavi...
Principal Investigator:Read, Carol Licenced Year(s):
The researcher and her team will build a conduct fish weir and trap across the Tugaat River in order to enumerate and sample the upstream run of Arctic char into the Tugaat River. They will enumerate all fish passing upstream; tag 3000-5000 fish with anchor tags; dead sample a size range of 100 to 200 fish, and live sample 2000 to 3000 fish....
