Project Code: OF-04-P14
Area:Applied Research
Sponsor:Foothills Model Forest

The primary purpose of this multi-year Project was to improve the understanding of how grizzly bears use forested landscapes in west-central Alberta [including the Swan Hills].

Project objectives included building upon and extending the remote sensing habitat work; preparing maps showing probability of grizzly bear occurrence and potential movement corridors; collecting a data set of grizzly bear habitat use and movement patterns; collecting animal health data; and transferring this information & tools to land and resource managers.

The funding for this Project covered the data collection, analyses, and report of findings for several sub-Projects during 2005/06.
