RESEARCH

ARCTIC PREDATORS

PROJECT OUTLINE


MRF is considering a research program that would target several Arctic predators in an attempt to learn more about their potentially nomadic movements and their population dynamics.  A comparative study including at least three or four species would be the preferred approach. 
Snowy Owl, Gyrfalcon, Rough-legged Hawk, and Arctic Fox are the most likely candidates for research.  The focus would be on investigating the relationships between between their movements, toxicological contamination, and reproductive success.  Further details on the project will be posted if it develops; we are interested in hearing from other researchers considering similar research programs, who may be interested in collaborating on such work.
