Species at Risk
Alberta has an amazing variety of wild species. However, some of these species are at risk of disappearing from the province.
These species at risk are the most vulnerable components of Alberta’s biodiversity and require special attention to maintain and recover their populations.

Alberta’s Strategy for Species at Risk
The Alberta government has a strategy to identify, recover and prevent species at risk from becoming extinct or extirpated.
The approach is science-based and systematic yet allows the incorporation of social and economic values. It is also cooperative and collaborative, and supported by the provincial Wildlife Act.
