Beneficial management practices for Ord's kangaroo rat in Alberta

Description

This recovery plan identifies the development of beneficial management practices (BMPs) for Ord's kangaroo rat as a recovery action contributing to the maintenance and recovery of this species in Alberta. The purpose of this document is to identify BMPs for resource managers and land user that will help mitigate effects of land use activities on this species and its habitat. These BMPs apply to a variety of land uses in Alberta including agricultural, industrial, rural, urban, commercial, access development and management and military activities. Although developed specifically for use in Alberta, these recommendations may also be applicable to other populations of these species in Canada or elsewhere. The recommendations were developed using current knowledge of this species' biology and habitat requirements, and based on known or anticipated effects of land use on this species, other species of kangaroo rats and other small mammals.
