Wildlife Conservation - What Can You Do?

Although Alberta Environment is responsible for managing our wildlife, you also have a right to get involved and let your government know what concerns you.  Here are a few things that you can do:

  • Join a local conservation organization that shares your values.  There are many from which to choose.  These groups often go on outings, hold workshops and get involved in habitat enhancement projects.

  • Get involved with local and regional land-use planning issues that affect wildlife and wildlife habitat in your town or city, in the County or Municipal District where you live, or on Provincial lands where you spend time.

  • Become a Wildlife Steward for a local park area, a Habitat Development Area, a Natural Area or some other plot of land which you are interested.

  • Reduce your own impact on the environment.  Remember that the materials you use and the waste you create every day affects the places where wildlife live.  Reduce, reuse, recycle
