Welcome to ECOLOGY CONNECTIONS, a website dedicated to providing educators and public access to primary ecological research and education resources. The research and education connections are relevant to High School Biology teachers, educators from non-formal education organizations and public interested in learning more about the science of Ecology.
The website has been developed and reviewed by a collaborative team of ecologists and educators from the University of Calgary, University of Alberta, Calgary Board of Education and Calgary Catholic School District. Funding for this project was provided through an Alberta Science and Research Investments Program 'Science Awareness and Promotion (SAP)' grant to the University of Calgary Kananaskis Field Stations.
