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
