MTRI Researcher Opportunities

If you are interested in doing research in the Southwest Nova Biosphere Reserve (SNBR), which is comprised of Kejimkujik National Park and the Tobeatic Wilderness area (at its core) and the surrounding five counties - Annapolis, Digby, Yarmouth, Shelburne, and Queens - you should check out what MTRI has to offer. Contact us at (902) 682-2371 or email for more information.

MTRI not only offers a great facility to act as a base for research in the SNBR but can provide invaluable contacts, local knowledge and support for your project.
