Status of the swift fox (Vulpes velox) in Alberta

Description

This wildlife status report looks at the swift fox. Once common throughout the short and mixed-grass prairie regions of North America, in Canada the species disappeared from historic ranges in the early 20th century and has been listed as "extirpated" since 1978. Reintroduction efforts have resulted in the establishment of small populations in southern Alberta and Saskatchewan and the species is current listed as Endangered in Alberta. This report is part of the Alberta Wildlife Status Report series, which provides comprehensive summaries of selected wildlife species intended to be useful to those managing populations of species and their habitats, and to help identify species that may be formally designated as endangered or threatened.
