PROJECTS - International

The following examples are some of the recent projects that Glenside has undertaken in Canada

Panama

ENVIRONMENTAL RESTORATION PROJECT, PANAMA ORDNANCE DISPOSAL

with Wolf’s Flat Ordnance Disposal Corp., Panama Canal Rangelands, Panama

  • Designed a long term ecological monitoring project to detect detrimental impacts resulting from the clearance of ordnance from the Panama Canal Rangelands. The habitat and behaviour of known bio-indicators were examined and two bio-indicator groups of species were recommended based on their suitability.  Inventory methodologies were reviewed and a precise procedure for data collection that would allow for rigorous statistical analysis was recommended.
  • Designed an asset management system that would allow for the systematic and comprehensive clearance of ordnance from the Panama Canal Rangelands.  Manageable land units were recommended based on clearance rates and contamination and a process for prioritizing units for clearance was recommended.  A data management system was conceptualized and appropriate technology recommended.

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT, PANAMA ORDNANCE DISPOSAL

with Wolf’s Flat Ordnance Disposal Corp., Panama Canal Rangelands, Panama

  • Conducted a technical evaluation of the environmental impacts associated with the clearing of unexploded ordnance from the Panama Canal rangelands.
  • Inventoried dominant tree species at sample clearing sites to identify available habitat and correlate with faunal communities.
  • Consulted with Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute scientists conducting relevant research in the Panama Canal area for further identification of potential impacts. 
  • Based on the sample project and interviews, full-scale impact projections were outlined and recommendations on possible mitigation techniques proposed.
United States of America

SEA OTTER DATABASE (SOD) DEVELOPMENT, CALIFORNIA

Monterey Bay Aquarium and the Oiled Wildlife Care Network, California, USA

  • Developed a relational Access database to provide sea otter care facilities with a comprehensive and powerful tool for recording, storing, summarizing and analyzing all types of data associated with the captive care of sea otters
  • SOD facilitates the development of a knowledge base and improved techniques for sea otter housing, care, and rehabilitation for release into the wild
  • Data types incorporated into SOD include (but are not limited to): animal acquisition and disposition, feeding, housing, grooming,open-ocean training, behavioural observations, medical examination, medical diagnostics, scheduled activities, washing, and various other data types specific to otters stranded or rescued as a result of an oil spill
Chile

GUANACO PARENTAL INVESTMENT STUDY

for Iowa State University, Iowa USA

  • Organized expedition crew for capturing, immobilizing and radio collaring of guanacos
  • Tracked animals via radio telemetry, conducted necropsies on carcasses
  • Collected behavioural data, performed censuses of population

Belize

BEHAVIOURAL MONOGRAPH OF WHITE-COLLARED MANAKINS

for University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Wisconsin U.S.A.

  • Conducted mist netting and colour banding
  • Mapped lekking area and display courts; made behavioural observations
