Grizzly Bear Research Database

The GIS Program is centralizing and maintaining the Grizzly Bear Program's massive spatial database.

Management of centralized grizzly bear research database supports multiple types of users. The Grizzly Bear Research Database is important because bear data can be quickly accessed and cross-referenced with other information, data collaboration opportunities exist with other agencies in Alberta, BC and in the US, and it helps to ensure the long-term conservation of grizzly bears in Alberta
