Beaubassin Research Station brings together students and researchers to collaborate on wetland and waterfowl issues that are of the utmost significance to our past, present, and future. Located among the Beausejour Marshes near Beaubassin and Fort Lawrence National Historic Sites, the Beaubassin Research Station is an example of academia, science and industry coming together to advance conservation.

Acadia University partnered with Ducks Unlimited Canada and Irving Oil to support and develop this internationally recognized centre for coastal and wetland research and historical discovery.  

The original house on the property has been restored to a research facility, and the surrounding freshwater and salt marshes are being restored as well. Through the summer months, the research station is home to a team of students and researchers who conduct critical field research and restoration of Acadian ecosystems. Irving Oil continues to support these vital student research initiatives, in partnership with Ducks Unlimited Canada.
