Long Point Waterfowl is dedicated to waterfowl- and wetland- research, conservation and training in the Great Lakes region, as well as to the celebration of our outdoor heritage in North America. The primary purpose of Long Point Waterfowl is to study the staging ecology and requirements of waterfowl on the lower Great Lakes. We also monitor trends in the distribution and abundance of waterfowl, perform research on waterfowl habitats, and generate information useful for management purposes. We are also involved in research projects concerning other species of concern such as least bitterns and sandhill cranes.
By making the results of our work available to the public and scientific community, we are a strong voice for conservation and we make substantial contributions to the science of waterfowl and wetland ecology. Long Point Waterfowl is also committed to providing hands-on opportunities for youth wildlife technicians, biologists and scientists, as well as to increasing public awareness of the important of maintaining healthy wetlands and sustainable waterfowl populations.
Long Point Waterfowl is committed to increasing wildlife awareness and outdoor heritage through different youth programs, university courses and general public awareness. We also manage and run a Research and Education Centre and an Avian Energetics Lab that offers services not available commercially anywhere else in North America.
