Labrador is known to be an ecologically unique region with beautiful Subarctic and Arctic landscapes. Labrador is also home to Inuit, Innu, mixed and settler people who together contribute to a diverse cultural landscape.  Observed changes to the natural environment are acutely felt by Labradorians so understanding and predicting future impacts is this laboratory's priority.
