Default Biodiversity conservation efforts in eastern mountains

A group to keep an eye on as they build their knowledge and add to this innovative biodiversity conservation program.

Beyond Ktaadn: An Organization for Eastern Alpine Biodiversity

We are an empirically-driven, interdisciplinary grassroots effort. Through research, educational programs, outreach, and strong regional partnerships, we are increasing public awareness of poorly-known mountain wilderness, identifying conservation priorities, monitoring sensitive mountain ecosystems, and informing land management and acquisition.
Beyond Ktaadn: Fall 2010 Update

we have initiated a multi-year project to determine whether wolverines are present in the mountains of the central Canadian Shield, a 3000 sq-km plateau of old-growth spruce and tundra. Wolverines have not been confirmed east of Hudson Bay since the 1980s. We have deployed an array of cameras to detect wolverines and other alpine wildlife in the remote alpine tundra of the Uapishka Mountains, Québec. Wolves, caribou, moose, black bear, otter, and pine marten have been captured by the camera
Nine species of amphibian occur in the alpine ponds at or above treeline in New Hampshire, Maine, Québec, Newfoundland, and Labrador.
