Principal Investigator:Roney, Keith Licenced Year(s):
The researchers will conduct an aerial survey of the Mackenzie Delta area to note the nesting habitats of waterfowl and shorebirds. Photographs (slides and video) will be taken as well as notes and sketches that will be applied to the design and planning of the exhibit for the Royal Saskatchewan Museum. A small plant collection (2-3 specimens of the most common plant species) will be obtained th...
Principal Investigator:Caswell, F. Dale Licenced Year(s):
The researchers will be studying Canada geese which breed in the eastern arctic areas of Cape Dominion (on Baffin Island), the Boas River (on Southampton Island) and the McConnell River (on the west coast of Hudson Bay). Leg bands and neck collars will be placed on individual birds in order to assist US and Canadian biologists in determining migration routes and wintering grounds of the tall gras...
Principal Investigator:Chapdelaine, Gilles Licenced Year(s):
The researchers will return to Akpatok Island in order to gather information on the biology of these seabirds. This study will increase knowledge on population size, the effects of the annual `turr' hunt in Newfoundland on this population, and where thick-billed murres overwinter in the south....
Principal Investigator:Bromley, Robert G. Licenced Year(s):
The researcher is interested in determining how many and what kinds of ducks, geese and swans are shot in the spring, as well as how many of the adult females harvested have eggs developing in them. This research has received a Wildlife Research Permit # WL 001432. A licence from the Science Institute is issued in order that the researcher can receive support from the Inuvik Research Centre....
Principal Investigator:Armstrong, Terry Licenced Year(s):
This ongoing study will involve observing glaucous gulls as they prey on nests of black brant and lesser snow geese. I will attempt to determine why the gulls seem to be more successful when attacking the nests of brant than those of snow geese. I will examine the feeding behaviour of the gulls and the defense behaviour of the geese. I will also examine the nesting success and clutch sizes of b...
Principal Investigator:Hines, Jim Licenced Year(s):
Data on the distribution, abundance, survival/mortality, and productivity are essential for the sound management of wildlife populations but there is a critical lack of such information for white-fronted geese, Canada geese, Pacific brant and tundra swan populations from the Inuvialuit Settlement Region. Helicopter surveys, ground counts and banding/neck collaring will help to determine distribut...
Principal Investigator:Nakashima, Douglas Licenced Year(s):
Mr. Nakashima is continuing his research into the ecology and use of eider ducks in central Hudson Bay. He will be interviewing residents to determine how the use of eider ducks has changed over the years. He also wants to learn which ducks are best to use for making clothing and how clothing is made....
Principal Investigator:Dickson, H. Loney Licenced Year(s):1989
To compile site specific information for planning, mitigation and monitoring on the distribution and abundance of migratory birds, with particular emphasis placed on specific shorebirds in the area of the proposed Polar Gas Pipeline, gas gathering site on Richards Island....
Principal Investigator:Green, John M. Licenced Year(s):
To further investigate the abundance and distribution patterns of benthic fishes to provide a better basis for understanding variations in the foraging behaviour and reproductive success of the black guillemots. Underwater observations will be made on benthic fishes and some specimens will be collected for analysis of their food habits, growth rates and fecundity....
Principal Investigator:Hayes, Brian Licenced Year(s):
To investigate the breeding biology of high-arctic, lightbellied brent geese (Branta bernicla hrota), including allied environmental factors which influence their breeding success....
