UWaterloo, Long Point Biosphere sign research, education agreement


The University of Waterloo and the Long Point Biosphere have signed a letter of intent to foster research and education opportunities in sustainability, conservation, and biodiversity. Under this agreement, they will develop university courses that feature experiential learning at the biosphere, explore research projects on issues such as road ecology, and provide high school students in Norfolk County with information about related courses at UWaterloo. “The Long Point Biosphere has nationally important concentrations of biodiversity, high levels of species at risk, and an exceptional agro-ecosystem,” said UWaterloo Professor Derek Armitage. “The partnership […] aligns with our commitment to community-engaged and applied research to help address pressing biodiversity, climate and water challenges.”
