Moose in Riding Mountain National Park are affected by hunting, predator population numbers, winter severity, and disease. Riding Mountain National Park conducts annual aerial surveys to monitor the moose population to determine if the population is within the established population thresholds based on historic estimates.
Beavers are a key component of the Riding Mountain National Park ecosystems. The park surveys active beaver food caches by air in 30 habitat blocks every 3 years. These surveys have been conducted since 1973.
Contained within the National Parks, 1961 to 1994, Atlas of Canada series, is a map that shows Riding Mountain National Park. This map is essentially a topographic map: it was compiled at 1: 125 000 using larger-scale maps as the source. However, the Riding Mountain map has a few unique features: one is the use of shaded relief, another is the use of symbols for recreational facilities found in the Park.
Between 2010 and 2019, 17 remote, motion-activated wildlife cameras (Reconyx PC90 Rapidfire Covert IR, Reconyx PC800 Hyperfire Professional Semi-covert IR and PC 900 Hyperfire Professional High Output Covert IR) were deployed in the park to monitor caribou presence. Cameras were placed non-randomly in accessible locations where animal captures were more likely (e.g. on travel corridors). In 2015, use of the camera data was expanded to the analysis of grey wolf occupancy in Pukaskwa’s coastal forests.
Intensive tree cutting and certain silvicultural practices carried out around La Mauricie National Park have fragmented moose forest habitat. In addition, the eastern wolf plays a key role in moose population dynamics in the park. In view of the forest habitat disturbances, sometimes harsh weather conditions, aging of the park's vegetation, the effects of peripheral hunting and the probable influence of other factors, it is essential to monitor changes in moose and wolf populations. Wolf populations and packs will be tracked using a camera device, winter monitoring of trails on an established route and observations gathered by employees and the general public.
The integrity of fire-dependent forest types will be maintained through prescribed burns. The park's fire management program uses remote sensing to monitor post-burn changes on the landscape annually. The Area Burned Condition Class measures will be used as per the PCA Fire Monitoring Plan.

Contained within the National Parks, 1961 to 1994, Atlas of Canada series, is a map that shows Jasper National Park. This bilingual map shows the topography of the park in great detail: it has contour lines (with a 500 foot interval), and it names a large number of mountains, giving their elevations in feet. The drainage within the park is also shown in detail, as are the glaciers in and around the park. Shaded relief is used on the map.
