Advancing methods and understanding: Status and drivers of mammal populations in Alberta

Biodiversity loss is a major concern worldwide. Alberta’s has abundant natural resources; however, developing these natural resources can impact species, including mammal species and those valued by the public. Understanding the impacts of disturbance on populations of mammals is necessary in order to inform environmental management. This project will harness existing data through the Alberta Biodiversity Monitoring Institute to enhance our understanding of mammal populations, such as moose and black bear, in Alberta, for the benefit of the province’s land-use decision makers and the public in general.
