Ord's Kangaroo Rat


Ord's Kangaroo RatUntil recently, Ord's Kangaroo Rats received little attention in terms of wildlife research and management in Alberta.  Between 1994 and 1997, Kangaroo Rat research has been conducted in and adjacent to Canadian Forces Base (CFB) Suffield.  The main objectives of the ongoing research include:

  • characterizing the survival and reproduction of northern Kangaroo Rats

  • determining the winter strategies of northern Kangaroo Rats

  • examining the distribution and abundance of Kangaroo Rats at CFB Suffield

  • detailing management considerations for the species at CFB Suffield
