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.
This dataset contains species counts that have been collected using an array of 30 remote wildlife cameras. The purpose of the study is to monitor grizzly populations. The wildlife cameras are therefore placed strategically in Grizzly habitat within and adjacent to the Firth River Corridor in Ivvavik National Park. The wildlife cameras capture a photo when an animal enters its’ zone of detection and saves the photo along with time and day.
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.

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..
Outline of Moose Habitat area (important grizzly area too)
This dataset shows the known and previously reported location of rare plants and animals in Yukon Territory as mapped by the Yukon Conservation Data Centre. The Yukon Conservation Data Centre follows NatureServe methodology that depicts Element Occurrences (an area of land and/or water in which a species is or was present)(EO) as polygons. These polygons include locational uncertainty. The locational uncertainty incorporates inaccuracies that can be associated with the collection of location information, such as inaccurate GPSs or vague locational descriptions.
