Principal Investigator:Charlie, Bella D Licenced Year(s):
The objective is to study the changes to the Porcupine Caribou migration route and the effects of increased hunting using the Dempster Highway (located in the NT and YT).
The Principal Investigator will video record interviews with Elders and traditional harvesters in Fort McPherson. Interviewees will be ask about how their hunting skills, locations and methods have changed over the past 30 yea...
Principal Investigator:Jansen, Kelsey L Licenced Year(s):
Ths research project is being carried out under the direction of the Wildlife, Lands and Environment Committee (WLEC) in Lutsel K’e and in collaboration with a community research assistant.
The objectives of this research project are to:
(1) collect and analyze traditional knowledge and ecological data of landscape-caribou interactions;
(2) develop a set of community-based indicators to assi...
Principal Investigator:Legat, Allice Licenced Year(s):
Researchers will interview elders throughout the Dogrib region. Interviews will be taped, translated and transcribed. Data is collected using the participatory action research (PAR) method which ensures Dogrib ownership and direction of the project and provides researchers with research skills. Researchers are being trained in GIS/database installation. The project is being conducted under the ...
Principal Investigator:Finley, K.J. Licenced Year(s):
The study will be conducted from the permanent station on Nipple Hill at Nuvuktiapik. Surveyor instruments will be used to document whale numbers and their feeding behavior in Aqvik and Kater Valleys. The research team will attach as many as four radio tags in order to learn more about the feeding behavior and depth that the whales are feeding at. The team will also photograph the whales and us...
Principal Investigator:Cosens, Sue Licenced Year(s):
The researcher will make daily flights from Igloolik to look for bowheads. The researcher will estimate the relative abundance, assess stock status and describe the spring distribution and movements of the bowheads in Foxe Basin. The researcher will also locate a study site where a hydrophone array could be set up to count migrating bowheads in future years....
Principal Investigator:Morrison, R.I.G. Licenced Year(s):
Work by Dr. Morrison at Alert in the mid 1970's established the Knots and Turnstones breeding on northern Ellesmere Island migrate to wintering grounds on the European seaboard. Most migrate via staging areas in Iceland, though some of the population reaches Ellesmere via Norway. The internationally coordinated research program carried out over the last six years to study the migration, ecophysiol...
Principal Investigator:Mate, Bruce R. Licenced Year(s):
The Researchers will once again attempt to tag 12 bowhead whales. They will study how the whales move about during the feeding season and where and when they migrate west out of the Beaufort Sea. They will determine whether the migratory routes or timing vary between different kinds of animals and will determine the dive habits of the tagged animals....
Principal Investigator:Stewart, Robert E.A. Licenced Year(s):
To obtain jaws from seals (Inuit hunt kill) to determine basic information on migration, distribution, and age frequencies in the hunter catch; to collect tissue samples and note behavioural and reproduction observations....
