Supporting ecological research in Beaubassin
The Beaubassin Research Centre and surrounding Tantramar Marsh dyke lands straddle the border between New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, and are a unique and threatened landscape. An area of extensive wetlands, it is part of a major migratory pathway for ducks, songbirds and shorebirds. It is also one of the most historically important regions in North America.
The work at the Centre was recently featured on the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council website.
