All are welcome to join us Wednesday, February 8th at 7:30pm, in the Auditorium of the Peterborough Public Library.
Kaitlin Breton-Honeyman and Jennie Knopp, PhD candidates at Trent University, have been studying beluga and arctic char ecology in the Canadian Arctic using a mixed methods approach. This approach draws on both biological science and Indigenous knowledge to inform understandings of these species. Kaitlin has been working in Nunavik (Arctic region of Quebec) studying beluga habitat ecology and Jennie has been working with the Inuvialuit (Arctic Region of Northwest Territories) on community-based monitoring of char. They will discuss how they have brought together these two knowledges and in particular what they have learned from the people who live connected to these species.
