The Alberta Provincial Grizzly Bear Recovery Plan (2008–2013) identifies actions needed to achieve grizzly bear recovery. New scientific data is needed to help direct recovery efforts, to achieve and document recovery of this threatened species. This research initiative focuses on:
- the development of science-based population recovery targets estimated from grizzly bear habitat capabilities and grizzly bear landscape energetic requirements
- the development of innovative non-invasive techniques for monitoring and a greater understanding of grizzly bear reproductive performance.
