Retaining and improving the diversity and abundance of wildlife, species at risk and their habitat.
Since 1997, we’ve made notable progress within the Wildlife program. Here are a few milestones:
- 1300 nest boxes established
- 61,175 ducklings fledged from these boxes
- 29,000 km walked while working to reverse the decline of the endangered piping plover—¾ of the way around the world!
Hunters and conservation have a relationship that is a long-standing tradition in Alberta. We honour it by applying science-based methods to wildlife conservation. Landowners are vital to our work—many of our enhancement activities focus on private land, where we collaborate with farmers and ranchers. We foster long-term relationships and find solutions that benefit both wildlife and landowner business models.
Wildlife projects are delivered within four areas: 1) Ungulates, 2) Upland Game Birds, 3) Waterfowl, and 4) Species at Risk. A complete list of wildlife projects, associated reports and project reports is available.
