We do our field work once a year (spring) in the Beaufort Sea region and twice a year (spring and fall) in Churchill, Manitoba. Each outing lasts 2-6 weeks, though many of these days are “weather days”.
All field work is reviewed before proceeding by the University of Alberta BioSciences Animal Policy and Welfare Committee and the Environment Canada Prairie and Northern Region Animal Care Committee. We use Telazol® for immobilization. If you have any questions about our field work, please feel free to contact us using the Contact form.
