General status of Alberta wild species

Conservation goals are tracked in Alberta by monitoring the general status of wild vertebrate species.

Introduction

Alberta has long enjoyed the legacy of abundant wild species. These same species are important environmental indicators; their populations reflect the health and diversity of the environment. General status determination is the first step in a continuing process of evaluating and reporting on the biological status of Alberta's wild species. Those species determined to be ‘at risk’ receive a detailed status assessment and evaluation. Find out how the general status of wild species is determined.
