Mission Statement


The mission of the Centre for Wildlife Ecology (CWE) is to foster high
quality, graduate training and research, conduct basic and applied research
in wildlife ecology, and to provide knowledge and personnel that will help
Environment Canada and other agencies meet the challenges of conservation
in the 21st century.  The central concept is to foster synergy between the
mission-oriented research and management policies of the Canadian
Wildlife Service (CWS) and the basic research agenda of the
University.  Information, ideas, expertise, resources and opportunity flow
back and forth across this interface.  Government agencies gain access
to a broad base of science capability that helps inform policy and decision
making, while the university and its faculty and students benefit from
enhanced opportunities for research and its application.
