Welcome to the Wildlife Research Station

 

 

Since its inception in 1944, the WRS has been providing access and logistical support for University and government researchers from Ontario and across North America. The WRS is situated on Lake Sasajewun in Algonquin Provincial Park and operates as a non-for-profit organization.

The second annual Wildlife Ski Tour on March 1st was a success! Over 40 skiers turned out to enjoy the beautiful day, a hot chili lunch, win draw prizes, and the chance to learn more about park wildlife. Thank you to everyone that came out – staff, volunteers, supporters and most of all the skiers! More pictures on the WRS Facebook page and Event Page.

Welcome to the Algonquin Wildlife Research Station (WRS) website!

 

We hope our new website will provide insight into the world class research being conducted within Algonquin Park, everyday camp life at the WRS, and a chance for past researchers, staff and potential new visitors to be kept up-to-date on what's happening at the WRS. I encourage you to browse our website and see all of the exciting new research and events that the WRS is hosting and don't forget, if you are able, that the WRS is in need of your financial support.

 

If you have any questions or comments please submit them to me, Timothy Winegard, Manager of the WRS at wrs@vianet.ca. Please enjoy our new site, and check back often for news, research updates, and upcoming events!
