Project Description:
This project conducts scientific research on the population ecology of arctic-nesting waterfowl in the Queen Maud Gulf Migratory Bird Sanctuary, specifically on Lesser Snow, Ross’s, Greater White-fronted, and Cackling Geese, King Eiders, and Long-tailed Ducks. Annually, the abundance of each species nesting in the area is estimated, as are metrics associated with population dynamics, such as clutch size, and egg, nest, and adult survival. These metrics are invaluable for addressing management concerns of harvested species, both within Canada and internationally within North America. Further, we monitor factors thought to influence reproductive ecology in order to explain annual variation in productivity. We also conduct similar research on arctic fox and small mammals (lemmings), less-intensive studies on waterbirds such Herring and Glaucous Gulls, Arctic Terns, and Red-throated Loons, and record observational data of grizzly bears, wolverines, and wolves.
