In this episode of the Wildsmart Speaker Series, John Paczkowski gives his presentation, Where the Wildlife Roam: Wildlife Movement and Corridor Use in the Bow Valley.

In 2001, Canada hosted the G8 Summit in Kananaskis. One of the outcomes of the summit was the creation of the Kananaskis Summit Environmental Legacy, to improve habitat connectivity and wildlife corridors, and to reduce wildlife mortality in the Bow River valley near Canmore, Alberta.

Join John as he takes us through the reasons behind the G8 legacy mitigations, learn what underpasses are, how they are used and by who, and recent research on wildlife corridor connectivity and corridor movement in the Bow Valley.

Program: On Tape

visit ParkRadio.ca

Fire suppression has left local forests unnaturally dense and led to grasslands being lost. This presents a potentially dangerous wildfire situation to our national park communities. Innovative, low-impact forest thinning around our commmunities and other important locations has reduced the risk of loss from wildfire, while helping to restore ecosystems.
