NCASI has hosted several webcasts on key topics relevant to development and execution of its caribou and nutrition research program. Presentations by key members of the research team have covered: (1) background information and science related to the development of the project; (2) an understanding of the specific strengths of each key research team member; and (3) expanded information on the specific research to be undertaken during the captive (tame) caribou phase of the project.
Recordings of the most recent webcasts are available to NCASI members.
For more information, contact Kirsten Vice (gro.isacn@ecivk) or Dr. Kevin Solarik (gro.isacn@kiralosk) in the NCASI Montreal office.
