Environmental Technology Program (ETP) students at the Nunavut Research Institute in Iqaluit took part in a bird dissection workshop this month.
Environment Canada, working in partnership with Nunavut Tunngavik Incorporated, the Qikiqtani Inuit Association, the Kivalliq Inuit Association and the Kitikmeot Inuit Association, is hiring Inuit students to work in their offices for 4 month periods during the summer.
The Environmental Technology Program once again partnered with Researchers to learn about how Climate Change is affecting bird species in Nunavut. New this year was a partnership with two other college programs; so that every bird could be used to its fullest potential. Up to 50 students benefited from this project, whether it was by learning how to prepare an eider skin, learning to dissect an eider, or by receiving shared meat.
