Bondi Resort Blog

Come on into our Blog for a look at the wonderful world we've got to share! With over 240 hectares (600 acres) of wilderness woodlands surrounding the resort, just ten minutes from Algonquin Park, we feature over 400 metres (1200’) of waterfront and beach; boat rentals; summer hiking trails winding through fields and woods; 20 km. of groomed cross country ski trails and snowshoeing in winter; access to nearby snowmobile trails for sledders, and a toboggan hill for the young at heart.

Life is Better when you bring a Friend Along

The research done in Algonquin, at the Wildlife Research Station, has a long history of excellence.  We are happy to support them in their work!

42-years of Turtle research in Algonquin Provincial...

The Algonquin Wildlife Research Station (AWRS; has been home to a 42-year study on the ecology of the Snapping Turtle (Chelydra serpentina) and a 36-year study on the ecology of the Painted Turtle (Chrysemys picta). Over the course of this long-term study we have been able to ask questions about chelonian longevity, reproduction, diet, habitat use, movement and migration, road mortality, (the extensive list goes on!), and address pressing issues of conservation. This study has resulted in many dozen peer-reviewed publications, the thesis research of nearly 100 graduate students, and the training of hundreds of undergraduate students and volunteers. There are turtles that were first marked in the early 1970's that are still alive and nesting today!

If we are to continue our research we will need your support! Please consider sharing our campaign (and updates) to Save the AWRS with friends, family and wildlife lovers everywhere!
