Surveying Alberta's biodiversity on your land.

Biodiversity is the variety of life on Earth, from microscopic insects to massive trees, and all the wildlife in between. Maintaining biodiversity supports productive ecosystems and is critical to human health. 

For example, healthy ecosystems help to:

  • regulate our climate
  • provide clean and reliable sources of drinking water
  • produce trees to support timber production
  • create forage for sustainable cattle production
  • supply the many pollinator species required to produce high yielding crops

Monitoring changes in biodiversity across Alberta provides Albertans with the reliable, scientific information necessary to make informed decisions about land use and the management of our natural resources.
