The Wood Buffalo National Park (WBNP) Bison Abundance database is a data set that documents numbers of bison observed during bison population estimate surveys conducted in WBNP. Survey methodology was standardized from 2002 to present. A strip transect survey allows for both minimum counts and a population estimate with accompanying estimates of precision. Survey intervals have ranged from 2 to 5 years.

Annual aerial surveys are conducted along transects in late February to monitor the size of the Sturgeon River Plains Bison population, one of the few wild populations remaining in North America. This species is a key grazer of grasslands and a unique part of regional biodiversity in and around the south-west corner of Prince Albert National Park. Plains bison are a threatened species under the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC).

The Provincial Bison Protection Areas dataset is comprised of all the polygons that represent Bison Protection Areas in Alberta. In order to support the conservation, management and recovery of disease-free bison in northern Alberta, wood bison located within specified Wildlife Management Units (WMUs) are listed as Threatened under the Wildlife Act and Regulation. All hunting of wood bison within Northwest Bison Protection Area is regulated and based on issuance of a bison special licence and allocation processes for both Indigenous and non-Indigenous persons. All hunting (Indigenous and non-Indigenous) of wood bison within the Wabasca Bison Protection Area is prohibited.

The Grasslands National Park monitors the area of occurrence of the Black-Tailed Prairie Dog through measuring surface area in hectares of active colonies. Monitoring provides data on the expansion or contraction of black-tailed prairie dog colonies in the park. Active colony areas outside of the park and in the greater park ecosystem (southwest Saskatchewan) are also monitored, but this data is not included.
