Our work focuses on how environmental and the cumulative impacts of human activities impact socio-ecological systems. This involves taking a grassroots, ethnographic approach to research and working closely with communities. We have or are currently working with communities in the Canadian Arctic, Australia, Pacific Islands region and British Columbia. Below are details about our work in each region.

Our research in the Canadian Arctic primarily involves working with communities in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region of the Northwest Territories. Research areas include climate change vulnerability and adaptation, food security, education and cultural programming and knowledge co-production.
Our research in Australia includes projects focusing on sea turtle conservation, Indigenous land management, remote sensing and climate chagne adaptation.
Our research in BC has included working with several different First Nations on the cumulative impact of resource development and hydroelectricity generation on several fish species in northern BC.
Our research in the Pacific Islands region includes research in Fiji and Tuvalu. Research areas include food security, social value mapping, and climate change adaptation.
