In light of global situation with COVID-19, and with respect to the positions of both the Canadian and Russian governments, we have had no choice but to cancel our plans for the 2020 field season.
This was a sad decision, but a necessary one. The health of our researchers and those in the communities they visit are paramount. We wish everyone good health & security, and look forward to resuming fieldwork when it is safe to do so.
