Welcome to ArcticRaptors.ca

The Arctic Raptor Project builds on the success of a long-term project that examined the toxicology and breeding biology of Peregrine Falcons at Rankin Inlet, Nunavut.   The research program relies on well-established  partnerships with the Government of Nunavut, the Nunavut Wildlife Management Board, ArcticNet Network of Centers of Excellence, the Canadian Circumpolar Institute at the University of Alberta and the University du Quebec Rimouski.

Our aim is to provide science-based information to wildlife managers for the purpose of enhancing conservation and management of Arctic-nesting raptors in the Canadian Arctic.

Our research focus includes long-term monitoring of basic demography (occupancy, reproductive success, recruitment and survival), raptor ecology (migration, diet, home range size and overlap), and examines these components in the context of climate change and industrial development.

In addition we contribute to the training of Highly Qualified Personnel in the field of raptor ecology, and to a broader awareness of Arctic-nesting raptors through web-based and mobile technologies.
