NATURE MONCTON MARCH MEETING

Virtual Meeting

Monitoring Caribou Habitat in Canada’s Changing North”

Presenter: Ryan Danby

 

Many of Canada’s large northern caribou herds have declined over the last two decades. While the herds are known to fluctuate naturally, the magnitude of their recent declines is well outside of historical observations. Climate-related changes in habitat condition may be partly responsible, and this presentation will explore the use of modern satellite mapping technologies for examining this.

 

Presenter: Dr. Ryan Danby is an associate professor of Geography and Environmental Studies at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. He has been conducting research in Northern Canada and Alaska for the last 25 years with the aim of better understanding the causes and consequences of ecosystem change and their implications for conservation.

 

Given that Caribou once roamed in areas north of New Brunswick, this presentation is of interest to us all.
