Alberta grizzly bear recovery plan

Description

Grizzly bears (Ursus arctos) were listed as a Threatened species by the province of Alberta in 2010. Concern about Alberta’s grizzly bear population started much earlier and resulted in a recovery team being formed to develop a recovery plan. A draft of the recovery plan was completed in 2005, sport hunting of grizzly bears was discontinued in 2006, and the five-year recovery plan was accepted by Alberta’s Minister of Sustainable Resource Development in 2008. The 2008 Alberta Grizzly Bear Recovery Plan (AGBRP) was revised with input from provincial staff involved with grizzly bear population and habitat management, researchers, and representatives from industry, agricultural producers, Indigenous communities and environmental groups.
