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...

The over-arching objectives of the project are to draw together multiple sources of information to (1) examine the change in lake area in this eco region, (2) quantify the type and amount of habitat loss or modification; (3) investigate whether recent changes are part of a longer-term cycle and evaluate the causes of this change; (4) document local and traditional knowledge of physical and biologi...

The objective of this research would be to understand public attitudes, beliefs, and values toward wood bison and their management. By addressing key issues and local and Aboriginal attitudes, beliefs and behavioural intention toward wood bison and the diseases that they carry, this applied research will aid in a better understanding of how these community perceptions can contribute to the managem...

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...

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 ...

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...

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...

The proposed research will develop and evaluate innovative tools and processes to help better understand caribou anatomy and facilitate caribou health.
Specific objectives of this project are to:
1. Engage communities in the planning, data collection, interpretation, and integration of traditional knowledge into an anatomical atlas of caribou as a tool to facilitate monitoring the health of t...

This licence is being issued for the scientific research application No. 904.
The primary objectives of this research are: 1) to understand how factors such as caribou availability, wage economy opportunities, fuel prices, store-bought food prices, alternative country food availability, and income affect harvesting behaviour; 2) to explore to what extent other meat sources are used to replace c...

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...
