Identifying habitats that influence body condition and fitness of adult female caribou in the southern Northwest Territories [traditional knowledge component
Principal Investigator: Kelly, Allicia
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4572. The objective of this project is to describe different plants and vegetation communities that offer different nutritional value to boreal caribou using both scientific and traditional knowledge language. As well as create a plain-language document that shares information on habitats, vegetation communities, plant sp...


Vegetation Productivity on the Bathurst Caribou Range
Principal Investigator: Danby, Ryan K
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018
Summary: The two main objectives are: to map changes in vegetation productivity on an annual basis across the Bathurst caribou herd’s range using satellite imagery obtained from NASA’s MODIS sensor (available since 2000) and analyze these data to identify where the most significant changes have occurred; and to collect and analyze data on the growth, establishment, and mortality of shrubs and trees over th...


Recovery of boreal caribou habitat after forest fires
Principal Investigator: d'Entremont, Marc
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018
Summary: In 2015-2016, the Deninu Kue First Nation (DKFN) and LGL (Lewis, Gunn, Livingston) Limited completed a traditional use study on boreal caribou habitat and habitat use that incorporated traditional knowledge and scientific information in the identification of foraging habitat for boreal caribou in the South Slave region of the Northwest Territories (NWT). One outcome of the study was the DKFN elder...


Impacts of wildfire extent and severity on caribou habitat
Principal Investigator: Baltzer, Jennifer L
Licensed Year(s): 2018 2017 2016
Summary: The main objective of this fieldwork is to support the collection of data for predictive caribou habitat mapping within the forested areas of the Taiga Plains and Taiga Shield Ecoregions in NWT, roughly south of Great Bear Lake. The research team will complete the establishment of a network of long-term study plots across a range of fire characteristics and vegetation types, where the team will me...


Using Traditional Knowledge of JMRFN Elders to better understand changes in the boreal caribou habitat.
Principal Investigator: Laurent, Cyrielle C
Licensed Year(s): 2017
Summary: This project aims to demonstrate the cumulative impact of permafrost degradation and forest fire on boreal caribou habitat and how caribou habitat degradation affects Jean Marie River First Nation (JMRFN). To do this the research team will collect and use traditional knowledge (TK), and analyse it in a geographic information system (GIS) with scientific data. The research team expect to locate are...


When do Caribou return?: Impacts of Wildfires on Todzi (Boreal Caribou)
Principal Investigator: Pellissey, Jody
Licensed Year(s): 2017 2016 2015
Summary: The long-term objective of this project is to document todzi sites associated with habitat that remain undisturbed and others where habitat has been burned by wildfires. The research team will focus on the research/monitoring questions of ‘when do todzi return to and stay in an area that has been burnt. This year the team is scoping places where todzi have been watched and hunted overtime. The...


Relating changes in snowpack water equivalent and structure to migratory behaviour of the Bathurst Caribou herd
Principal Investigator: English, Michael C
Licensed Year(s): 2016
Summary: The objectives are to work with local residents of Wekweeti to understand how changes in the annual snowpack may impact caribou. The idea is that with increased incursions of warm southern air into the subarctic during winter that snow crusts and ice lenses may be created in the snowpack and as a result increase the energy expenditures of the caribou when foraging for food at the base of the snowp...
