Status of the American badger (Taxidea taxus) in Alberta

Description

This wildlife status report looks at the North American badger. Once common throughout southern Alberta, trapping and land cultivation led to a rapid decline in the Alberta population of the badger in the 20th century. Recent anecdotal evidence indicates that local populations may be stable to increasing. 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.
