The objective of this project is to estimate grizzly bear abundance and distribution in the Kivalliq region of Nunavut by combining Inuit traditional knowledge about grizzly bears with genetic data already collected by the Government of Nunavut. Working with the communities of Arviat and Baker Lake, we will use both pre-existing interview recordings and new interview data collected by trained local interviewers so that no researcher from down south needs to visit Nunavut during the pandemic.
