Developing spatial data and model sharing gateway to help WCS Canada to protect wildlife in the Yukon.

CBI will be constructing a new Data Basin Gateway for the Wildlife Conservation Society Canada focusing on the Yukon Territory to assist WCS Canada researchers and their conservation partners in the region to develop effective protection of wildlife populations being impacted by a host of environmental stressors, with special emphasis on climate change. In addition to the branded and curated gateway, a customized application is being developed to present species distribution models designed to predict future changes in important habitats due to climate change for a wide range of wildlife species; for example, caribou, wood bison, endemic plants, and bats.
