Lake Sturgeon Conservation on Georgian Bay: Weaving Western Science & Indigenous Knowledge

Carter Rouleau, Sturgeon Research Coordinator & Community Liaison at Shawanaga First Nation, will provide an overview of a collaborative project run by Shawanaga First Nation and the Georgian Bay Biosphere that aims to create the basis for a Lake Sturgeon conservation plan for eastern Georgian Bay. He will give a brief overview of Lake Sturgeon biology and discuss threats they face. Learn about Shawanaga First Nation's use of both modern scientific monitoring and traditional ecological knowledge gathering in the writing of a conservation plan, and the findings from the project thus far.
