The Churchill Rock Bluffs are located adjacent to Hudson Bay. There are depressions in the Rock Bluffs that collect water every spring and create a unique habitat for small aquatic life. These possess some very unique characteristics that enable zooplankton like Daphnia, which are tiny aquatic organisms, to populate the pools. There population is part of a much larger muchetacommunity. Metacommunities are ecological communities that are linked to each other through dispersing individuals. Since the Rock Bluffs contain hundreds of small rock pools teeming with zooplankton life, they are perfect to examine research topics such as how the environmental changes brought about by global warming might affect life in the Arctic.
