Program & Project Involvement

Grizzly Bear Program
Program

Grizzly Bear Program

The fRI Research Grizzly Bear Program provides knowledge and planning tools to ensure the long-term conservation of grizzly bears in Alberta.

Dynamic Regeneration of Grizzly Bear Food Model
Project

Dynamic Regeneration of Grizzly Bear Food Model

This is a GIS tool developed by the fRI Research Grizzly Bear Program that regenerates the spatial grizzly bear food models developed by Dr. Scott Nielsen.

Grizzly Bear Habitat and Reproduction Research
Project

Grizzly Bear Habitat and Reproduction Research

Research project looking at grizzly bear habitat to develop population recovery targets, and the development of new techniques for monitoring grizzly bear reproduction.

Grizzly Bear Research Database
Project

Grizzly Bear Research Database

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

Research and applied tools to enhance forest management linkages to Grizzly Bear conservation and recovery in Alberta
Project

Research and applied tools to enhance forest management linkages to Grizzly Bear conservation and recovery in Alberta

This project will use new and existing data sets to produce tools for use in forest management planning related to grizzly bear and caribou habitat use.

Response of threatened species to linear features and landscape change in a managed forest ecosystem in West Central Alberta
Project

Response of threatened species to linear features and landscape change in a managed forest ecosystem in West Central Alberta

How are caribou affected by the roads and seismic lines criss-crossing their habitat?

Analysis and restoration of seismic cutlines in Southern Mountain and Boreal caribou range in west-central Alberta
Project

Analysis and restoration of seismic cutlines in Southern Mountain and Boreal caribou range in west-central Alberta

Starting in 2013, this project is looking at how caribou and wolf behaviour is related to cutlines.

Assessing disease prevalence and caribou health in west-central and north-western Alberta
Project

Assessing disease prevalence and caribou health in west-central and north-western Alberta

Collecting baseline health data for Alberta caribou herds.

Potential Impacts of Mountain Pine Beetle and Management Actions on Grizzly Bear and Caribou Populations in West-Central Alberta
Project

Potential Impacts of Mountain Pine Beetle and Management Actions on Grizzly Bear and Caribou Populations in West-Central Alberta

This project will determine how MPB-killed stands are impacting caribou and grizzly bear habitat.

Research to Support Recovery and Long Term Conservation of Grizzly Bears in Alberta
Project

Research to Support Recovery and Long Term Conservation of Grizzly Bears in Alberta

This project develops population recovery targets based on habitat, and non-invasive techniques for monitoring grizzly bear reproductive performance.

Yellowhead (BMA 3) Grizzly Bear Population Inventory
Project

Yellowhead (BMA 3) Grizzly Bear Population Inventory

This project uses DNA from hair snags to create a population inventory of grizzly bears in BMA 3 and Jasper National Park.

Collecting Scat with Citizen Science to Monitor Grizzly Bear Populations
Project

Collecting Scat with Citizen Science to Monitor Grizzly Bear Populations

Collecting the DNA from scat is a non-invasive method of tracking grizzly bear populations.

Impacts of New Forestry Approaches on Grizzly Bear Habitat Use and Movement
Project

Impacts of New Forestry Approaches on Grizzly Bear Habitat Use and Movement

This project will investigate whether new approaches to forestry can minimize impacts on resident grizzly bears.

Linkages between forestry practices, ungulate abundance, and the habitat use and performance of grizzly bear in and adjacent to woodland caribou habitat
Project

Linkages between forestry practices, ungulate abundance, and the habitat use and performance of grizzly bear in and adjacent to woodland caribou habitat

This project will improve our understanding of how forestry practice is affecting ungulates and how grizzly bears are responding.

Determining How Bears Use Gated Roads
Project

Determining How Bears Use Gated Roads

Do gated roads protect bears from vehicle traffic?

Determining the importance of grizzly bear predation on southern mountain caribou populations
Project

Determining the importance of grizzly bear predation on southern mountain caribou populations

This project will look at the impact of grizzly bears on caribou populations.

Clearwater (BMA 4) Grizzly Bear Population Inventory
Project

Clearwater (BMA 4) Grizzly Bear Population Inventory

This DNA mark-recapture study uses hair snags to conduct the first repeat estimate of the population of grizzly bears in BMA 4.

Swan Hills (BMA 7) Grizzly Bear Population Inventory
Project

Swan Hills (BMA 7) Grizzly Bear Population Inventory

This DNA mark-recapture study uses hair snags to conduct the first ever estimate of the population of grizzly bears in BMA 7.

The Co-existence of a Threatened Population of Grizzly Bears with Quarry Mining in Alberta, Canada
Project

The Co-existence of a Threatened Population of Grizzly Bears with Quarry Mining in Alberta, Canada

This project will work with local high school students and quarry workers to determine grizzly bear use of the quarry site.
