The Grizzly Bear Recovery Zone is the geographic extent of Alberta which indicates the intention of the Government of Alberta to recover grizzly bears. The Recovery Zone is also be a priority for attractant management, management of other sources of human-bear conflict, and building public education, awareness, and understanding of grizzly bears and their recovery. The Grizzly Bear Recovery Plan Management Zones dataset contains four layers: Grizzly Bear Core Access Management Area, Grizzly Bear Secondary Access Management Area, Grizzly Bear Habitat Linkage, and Grizzly Bear Support Zone. Please see the individual metadata records for additional details on each layer.
Grizzly bear habitat to be incorporated into the Central Coast Land and Coastal Resource Management Plan
Boundaries identifying similar behavioural ecotypes and sub-populations of Grizzly bears. This dataset contains versions from multiple years. From 2018 on, NatureServe conservation concern ranking categories (e.g., Very Low, Low, Moderate, High, Extreme Concern) supersede the pre-2018 population status categories (e.g., Viable, Threatened, Extirpated) contained in the field STATUS. NatureServe conservation concern ranking categories reflect population size and trend, genetic and demographic isolation, as well as threats to bears and their habitats.
In Waterton Lakes National Park, grizzly bears are used as an umbrella species representing wildlife that are sensitive to human disturbance, whereas the status of secure habitat is used as a surrogate measure for assessing cumulative effects. The status of grizzly bear habitat is therefore considered to be a landscape level indicator of the ecological integrity in Waterton Lakes National Park and the significantly larger regional ecosystem upon which this wide ranging species depends. The Sensitive Species Secure Habitat measureassesses the percent of available grizzly bear habitat in Waterton Lakes National Park; this assessment is based on digital elevation models, remote sensing data, and human activity trail counters.
Contained within the 4th Edition (1974) of the Atlas of Canada is a collection consisting of a map showing location, extent and number of fur farms for 1967 as well as several graphs and 12 small scale maps showing the ranges of: beaver, barren ground caribou, mule deer, muskrat, woodland caribou, white tailed deer, mink, polar bear, mountain sheep, red fox / arctic fox, black bear / grisly bear and mountain goat / musk ox. The first graph shows the number, value and origin of raw furs for the 1966 to 1967 furring season as well as the territorial origin of leading fur types as a percentage of the national value by province and territory. The remaining graphs show, for the period between the 1924 to 1925 and 1966 to 1967 furring seasons, the seasonal values of raw furs, the average price per pelt for selected kinds and the value of export and import of raw furs.
Outline of Moose Habitat area (important grizzly area too)
Sensitivity analyses indicate that a small drop in black bear survival rates greatly increases the risk of extinction in both females and males. Since the mortality rate of bears in the park is directly affected by harvesting intensity and habitat alteration, La Mauricie National Park aims to limit human activities to ensure that a viable black bear population is maintained. The relative abundance of the black bear is assessed in the spring using a network of 30 sampling stations equipped with surveillance cameras or trail cameras..
The dataset includes subsurface stratigraphic picks for the interfingering members that define the transition between the Belly River Group and the Lea Park Formation in east-central Alberta (Townships 1 to 62, Ranges 1W4 to 21W4) made from wireline geophysical well logs. Coarsening upwards, siltstone to sandstone-dominated members of the Belly River Group include (from youngest to oldest) the upper Birch Lake, lower Birch Lake, Ribstone Creek, Victoria, and Brosseau members. Interfingering mudstone-dominated members of the Lea Park Formation include the Mulga, Grizzly Bear, Vanesti, and Shandro members. Where the top and base are present, we calculated isochore values for each member.
This project aims to capture population trends by estimating absolute abundance of American Black Bears (Ursus americanus) every 2-3 years and relative abundance of three forest mammals (American Black Bear, Grey Wolf (Canis lupus) and Black-tailed Deer (Odocoileus hemionus ssp.)) annually. Forty two 6.8 km2 grid cell units on the landscape are surveyed for animal presence three times per season between May and September using remote wildlife cameras. Cameras are cycled through the 42 sites over the course of the sampling season with each survey lasting ca.
Delineates the administrative units used by the NB Department of Energy and Resource Development to manage populations and harvest of deer, moose, bear and furbearer species. Examples of furbearer species are beaver, muskrat, otter, mink, fox, and raccoon.
