Urban lighting needs to consider migrating birds, new UM study suggests

UM RESEARCHERS LOOKED AT HOW THE NOCTURNAL EASTERN WHIP-POOR-WILL, SEEN HERE, INTERACTS WITH LIGHT POLLUTION WHILE MAKING ITS 4,000-KILOMETER MIGRATION. //PHOTO: ALICIA KORPACH APRIL 28, 2022 —  University of Manitoba researchers have published a paper that challenges the way we think about airspace. By equipping some migratory birds with a GPS backpack, the biologists provided new...

One fish, two fish, big fish, old fish – Just off your cottage’s dock, are there sturgeon or pike nearby?

Sturgeon spawn only intermittently and are very sensitive to changes in their environment. Today, there are very few sturgeon left, some in the Assiniboine River, almost none in the Red River, and pockets of populations in the Winnipeg and Nelson River systems. They can be detected using environmental DNA (eDNA) that can detect molecules sloughed...
