Park’s Upper School Arctic researchers have embarked on their fall fieldwork trip to northern Canada. Students identify free-ranging polar bears using image recognition software and estimate body condition non-invasively, thereby contributing to the body of scientific knowledge of the Arctic and developing research skills.
The International Student-led Arctic Monitoring and Research (ISAMR) group provides a groundbreaking model for scientific investigation and international cooperation. Collaboratively, youth from Canada, the United States, and northern Aboriginal communities conduct hands-on student-led field research on the flora and fauna at the southern edge of the Arctic, a place particularly vulnerable to climate change. During two field trips annually to northern Manitoba, funded by a grant from Canada’s National Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), students address ecological research questions and learn scientific methodology through data collection.
