2020-03-17: The global COVID-19 crisis continues to unfold as do institutional and government responses. We are monitoring the situation and responding to guidance and imperatives from Queen's University. For now we intend to stay open for individual researchers for the Spring and Summer but encourage them to access our facilities and landbase each day from home packing their own bagged lunch. We will not host gatherings of more than 10 people, and field courses, large workshops and other such meetings will not be hosted until further notice. For researchers from farther away, we will work to accommodate you in our facilities but will seek to ensure 'social distancing' with only one person per cabin, plenty of hand sanitizer and soap and water, and access to cooking facilities so that individuals may provide for themselves (we are exploring kitchen options). Please contact us should you have questions and note that our plans and actions may change as the situation evolves. Here is a link to COVID-19 resources at Queen's: https://www.queensu.ca/covidinfo/

Should you have questions regarding activities at QUBS please contact our Senior Manager Sonia Nobrega, Operations Managers of our two campuses, Aron Zolderdo and Adam Morcom, of QUBS Director Stephen Lougheed.

Please check back regularly for the latest updates.

QUBS Director Steve Lougheed travelling in Australia

January 30th, 2014

QUBS Director travelling in Australia supported by the J. Allen Keast Field Biology International Exchange Fund.

In January and February 2014, QUBS Director Steve Lougheed is traveling in Australia to various locales, field stations and the Australian Herpetological Society annual meeting in Canberra. The hope is that he will bring back some innovative ideas for programming, teaching and research at QUBS, but perhaps too develop some new research collaborations with Australian scientists. He has visited the Northern Territory around Darwin (including Litchfield and Kakadu National Parks), northern Queensland (around Port Douglas and Daintree National Park - including a trip to the Great Barrier Reef), and the south coast (south of Canberra).
