Species at Risk on Alberta First Nation Reserves

Have fun learning about the species at risk found in your community! Here you will find a list of species at risk in Alberta (including mammals, fish and birds), as designated by the Species at Risk Act (SARA), Schedule 1. SARA is federal legislation designed to identify and protect wildlife, insects and plants vulnerable to extinction. Most species at risk have large ranges – here you will see which species can be found near you.

This resource is for informational use only. The animals covered by SARA, as well as their designations under SARA, are continually changing as new information is gathered. We will do our best to keep this information up to date but please email if you notice an error.
