2016 Willmore mountain goat surveys

Description

Annual surveys for mountain goats have been conducted in the Willmore Wilderness Park and adjacent areas since 1974, to collect data on population trends, distribution and herd composition, and to monitor the status of these mountain goat herds. The objectives of this survey were to assess the status of mountain goat populations in the three hunted complexes in Willmore Wilderness Park. An additional complex was also assessed to inform general population trends. Aerial surveys are the primary method used to assess the population size, distribution, population trends and herd composition of ungulates in Alberta. This information supports the effective management and conservation of ungulates, and is used to set hunting licence allocations, identify areas with agricultural depredation problems, and determine priority areas for recovery actions.
