Last month, the Alberta government released a draft Regional Plan for the South Saskatchewan River basin which includes strategies for managing land and natural resources in southern Alberta. To evaluate the plan, WCS Canada's John Weaver used the findings of his report released in July, called Protecting and Connecting Headwater Havens, that assessed the conservation value of Crown lands in southern Alberta for six vulnerable species. He found that the draft regional plan fails to protect vital habitat for species such as grizzly bears, bull trout, and wolverine. Crucial unprotected areas included the headwaters of the Southern Canadian Rockies - the upper sections of the Carbondale River, Racehorse Creek, Oldman River, and Highwood River watersheds, and the valleys of upper Castle and West Castle River. If Canadians wish to have more of their natural heritage and treasured headwaters protected, then these areas should be designated as Wildland Provincial Parks or Conservation Areas with strong standards. The Alberta government is accepting public comments on the plan until January 15, 2014 (click here for information on how to submit comments).
