Carleton Conservation Researchers Partner with ECCC to Find New Ways to Save Threatened Biodiversity

Carleton University researchers are partnering with Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) on a new initiative to tackle the global biodiversity crisis.

“This a great example of Carleton researchers working directly with government partners to create positive change,” said Rafik Goubran, vice-president (Research and International). “We are fortunate to have some of the top researchers in ECCC located on the Carleton campus. There is excellent synergy with our Biology Department, and many of our students end up working permanently with ECCC because of our collaborations with them.”

Joseph Bennett, professor in Carleton’s Institute of Environmental and Interdisciplinary Sciences, Steven Cooke, director of the Canadian Centre for Evidence-Based Conservation which was established at Carleton in 2014, and Paul Smith, research scientist with the Wildlife and Landscape Science Directorate, Science and Technology Branch of ECCC, are leading this important partnership.
