Status of the red-tailed chipmunk (Tamias ruficaudus) in Alberta

Description

This wildlife status report looks at the red-tailed chipmunk, a small rodents that are found in the montane and subalpine regions of Waterton Lakes National Park and the West Castle Valley. There are two recognized subspecies of red-tailed chipmunks and southwestern Alberta is the northern range limit of one of these subspecies. Populations of both subspecies are probably secure on a continental basis, but they may be vulnerable to declines in the northern portions of their ranges. 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.
