Wildlife Analytics Lab
A made-in-Alberta solution to data procurement, Lethbridge College’s new Wildlife Analytics Lab is working toward improving wildlife conservation and management in Canada by providing cementum analysis of wildlife teeth. The campus lab is already receiving tooth analysis contracts from agencies and researchers across the country.
Lethbridge College CIT Students
Lenovo Case Study
In an effort to provide the best learning experience possible, CIT assigns Virtual Machines to students in certain 2nd year CIT courses. Even before the Pandemic, this allowed students to remotely access their custom compute environments. With rising student numbers, and the COVID-19 work-from-home mandate, the current solution wasn’t going to keep up – so we called our friends at Lenovo.
Students Earn Accolades For Lacrosse Stick Design
School of Engineering Technologies
A team of former-Lethbridge College engineering design and drafting technology students say they have found the answer to building a better lacrosse stick.
The group received recognition from the Association of Science and Engineering Technology Professionals of Alberta (ASET) as one of the provincial finalists for the 2020 Capstone Project of the Year Award.
Normal lacrosse sticks may be composed of steel, aluminum, carbon fibre, and other materials, such as wood and titanium.
Seeing progress with technology gives new hope to the future of the sport.
Environment and Climate Change Canada Donation
On January 13, 2020 Environment Canada and Climate Change Wildlife Enforcement Directorate (ECCC WED) donated a full skeleton mount of a Siberian tiger with it’s accompanying hide and skull. The tiger was domestically raised at St. Paul Silverspur Wildlife Ranch and when it passed the Ranch along with the following partners had the tiger mounted for educational use. The tiger skeleton was mounted by Royal Tyrrell Museum, the base was made by K&K Taxidermy and funding for the project came from BP, Alberta Sport, Recreation, Parks and Wildlife foundation and Alberta Community Development.
Part of the duties of ECCC WED is fulfilling Canada’s mandate under our commitment to the Convention on International Trade of Endangered Species (CITES). Although this specific tiger was not involved in trade its species is endangered and listed in CITES appendix 1 (the highest level of protection) and their trade is controlled. This tiger was donated to ECCC WED for the use of educating officers and the general public about CITES and the animals it protects.
Lethbridge College offers a diploma in natural resource compliance and a degree in conservation enforcement. ECCC WED decided to donate the tiger to the College so that its students and visiting public could continue to learn from the tiger.
