Abstract: Research is an essential part of wildlife conservation. Canada is a
vast country with a multitude of different species of mammals, birds, reptiles,

rely on the assistance of Canadians coast to coast to determine the state of
our wildlife species. Data collected from far and wide help scientists
determine which species and ecosystems are in trouble, find ways of conserving
them, or prevent them from getting in trouble in the first place. You can do
