In a scathing commentary published in the peer-reviewed journal, Canadian Wildlife Biology and Management, scientists from the Raincoast Conservation Foundation and the Universities of Saskatchewan and Victoria denounce the failure of researchers, government agencies, research institutions, and the scientific publishing process to abide by recognized ethical standards of animal research and welfare.

“Maintaining Ethical Standards during Conservation Crises”  was published in the journal Canadian Wildlife Biology and Management.
