Bighorn Sheep survey of designated winter ranges within Alberta Wildlife Management Units 437-446 : data summary report

Description

Aerial surveys of the Eastern Slopes of Alberta for bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis) abundance, composition and location have been conducted since 1972. Since 1978, surveys have focused on “selected” winter ranges, where concentrations of bighorn sheep had been identified during previous flights. This report summarizes observations of bighorn sheep obtained during an aerial survey of selected winter ranges on January 30, 31 and February 1, 2, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 17 2016. The objective of the survey was to document the abundance and composition of bighorn sheep in Cadomin and Willmore census zones. A ground survey of the adjacent Luscar & Gregg River Coal Mine census zone was conducted by mine operators.
