Principal Investigator: Lambert Koizumi, Catherine
Licenced Year(s): 2010 2008 2006
Summary: The research objectives are to: 1. Retrieve the last stationary collars from this study in order to document home ranges, movements and habitat use of Dall sheep, grizzly bears and wolves & quantify the interactions between the three species; 2. Remove remains of fencing material (fences, posts) in the study area, which were installed in 2003-2004 in relation with a previous GRRB research projec...


Polar bear traditional knowledge for the Beaufort Sea
Principal Investigator: Maraj, Ramona
Licenced Year(s): 2011 2010
Summary: The researcher will gather local and traditional knowledge 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. The researcher can then compare that information ...


A Case Study of Husky Lakes Beluga co-management using network analysis
Principal Investigator: Berkes, Fikret

Summary: This project aims to understand how co-management helps the people of Tuktoyaktuk to deal with environment and resource problems. The researcher hopes to look at the role of the FJMC, and the exchange of knowledge between the Inuvialuit and government scientists. Through meetings with Burton Ayles and Sheila Nasogaluak as well as a joint FJMC/DFO meeting, the Husky Lakes beluga entrapment issu...


Conceptual and Mechanistic Models for the Development and Survival of the Trichostrongylid, Ostertagia gruehneri, in Barrenground Caribou, With Respect to Northern Climate Change
Principal Investigator: Hoar, Bryanne M
Licenced Year(s): 2009 2008 2007
Summary: The objective of this study in 2009 is to determine if parasites (Ostertagia gruehneri) can survive on the tundra over winter. This is the third year of a three year study. This work is to study the parasite Ostertagia gruehneri. This is the most common stomach worm in barrenground caribou. Adult worms live in the stomach of caribou and eggs are shed in the feces of the caribou. Once in the env...

Local and Regional-Scale Societal Dynamics in Grizzly Bear Conservation
Principal Investigator: Clark, Douglas A
Licenced Year(s): 2006 2003
Summary: Government agencies responsible for grizzly bear management have made significant investments in biological studies; however, wildlife management programs based solely on biology, without understanding the human side of grizzly bear management, run the risk of creating conflicts. People who share the land with bears are especially affected by these decisions. These conflicts can waste time and mon...
