About Long Point Waterfowl

Long Point Waterfowl (LPW) is a non-profit, non-government organization dedicated to the study and conservation of waterfowl and wetlands throughout the lower Great Lakes. By making our work available to the public and scientific community, we make substantial contributions to science and are a strong voice for conservation.

LPW is also committed to supervising and supporting graduate student (M.Sc. and Ph.D.) research on waterfowl- and wetlands-related projects, as well as to providing a diversity of educational opportunities for undergraduate and students. LPW also has a youth mentorship and education program as this is very important to the future development of wildlife biologists and appreciation of our outdoor heritage. Our education program is designed to give students and young aspiring biologists an increased understanding and appreciation of wildlife ecology, management, and conservation.

LPW is administered by Bird Studies Canada and is supported primarily by Bluff's Club members. LPW also receives generous support from various other individuals and organizations, including Ducks Unlimited Canada, the Waterfowl Research Foundation, Delta Waterfowl, Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters, Long Point Waterfowler’s Association, Order of Good Cheer, Bayou Club, Ontario Power Generation, and the Sam Johnson Graduate Scholarship.
