WORLD CLASS SCIENCE CONDUCTED IN ALGONQUIN PARK Algonquin Wildlife Research Station SUPPORT OUR WORK

Welcome to the Algonquin Wildlife Research Station

Situated on picturesque Lake Sasajewun in Algonquin Provincial Park, the Station consists of a collection of cabins functioning as accommodations and lab space for researchers, workshops and field courses.

Our vision is to be a leader in wildlife research and experiential learning. Since 1944, we have been supporting wildlife research and conservation, student training in the natural sciences, and outdoor education. Our long history of ecological research has contributed significantly to knowledge, policy, and conservation of species and ecosystems in Canada.

We operate as a registered Canadian not-for-profit organization administered by a volunteer Board of Directors and a small team of staff.
