Alberta is home to around 587 species of wildlife including 10 species of amphibians, 93 mammals 411 birds, 8 reptiles and 65 fish. Each of these species play a vital role in Alberta’s biodiversity. Species at risk is a growing problem with development and changes in the environment, it requires special attention to be able to recover and maintain these populations and their habitats. Join Lisa Wilkinson as she addresses the reasons why species become at risk, and explains how Alberta identifies, monitors and protects these species. The discussion will focus on species at risk in the Rockies and Foothills and give suggestions on how you can help.
