Ivvavik National Park of Canada

Research and Monitoring

Research and monitoring are essential for managing our national parks. Both activities lead to a better understanding of the cultural and ecological resources of parks and how these resources are affected by natural changes and human caused disturbances.

Recent projects in Ivvavik include:

  • wildlife population surveys for Porcupine caribou, muskoxen, moose, Dall's sheep, raptors, and breeding birds
  • sea temperature and storm surge monitoring
  • vegetation and terrain survey
  • weather and permafrost monitoring for climate change
  • water quality monitoring
  • Niaqulik archaeology salvage project
