Good wildlife management starts with good research. By studying wildlife interactions, distributions, populations and habitat use, research biologists are able to make sound recommendations for wildlife management.
Without a clear understanding of the biology of our wildlife species, we cannot plan or predict the effects of management strategies. Many research projects include a field component designed to collect data on specific wildlife species and to test specific hypothesis about factors regulating wildlife populations.
Research results are used to make recommendations to wildlife managers within the Wildlife Division, as well as to other provincial and federal government agencies such as Environmental Assessment and the Department of Fisheries and Oceans.
