For 2017 , our research will involve:
- The ongoing McMaster/GBGLF/Environment Canada Wetlands Project.
This project is researching the extent of wetland habitat loss in Georgian Bay as a result of prolonged low water levels and the ecological benefits of higher water levels
- Our work with McMaster University, with Dr, Pat Chow Fraser on vernal pools near Georgian Bay wetlands to determine the potential impact of Climate Change on them. This will be done by tracking the movement of Blandings Turtles from winter hibernation in the pools to Georgian Bay. We have already carried out initial research on these Species at Risk Turtles.
