• Cute animals: Canada's lonely beaver makes a new friend at Alberta Conservation Centre - TomoNews

    ALBERTA, CANADA — A baby beaver who was rescued by an Canadian conservation center in 2016 and gained internet fame as the 'lonely beaver' is lonely no more, because she has found a new friend. According to Alberta Institute for Wildlife Conservation, the 5-week-old baby beaver was found alone on a golf course in northwest Calgary with wounds on her tail. The beaver kit was admitted to the conservation center for recovery, where she has since stayed. Netizens noticed the female rodent was living alone, they quickly nicknamed her "the lonely beaver." However, things are about to change for the better. Earlier this year, a 2-year-old male beaver was admitted to the conservation center after he was found in a storm drain with a bite wound on his lower back. As beavers live better when t...

    This week I sit down with … well, rather I go fishing with Todd Zimmerling who has been at the helm of the Alberta Conservation Association for the past decade. We chat about the how and why the ACA was formed some 20-years ago. Like any new association, there were growing pains as the ACA set about the task of working with some well-established conservation groups across the province. It was a massive undertaking, but the effort has paid off as the variety of projects undertaken by the ACA on behalf of all Albertans has resulted in, a greater understanding of our habitat and the wildlife and fish that call Alberta home.

  • Plains Dancer: Alberta's Sharp-tailed Grouse

    The sharp-tailed grouse is a native game bird that makes its home in the prairies, parklands and forest openings of Alberta. For much of the year the sharp-tailed grouse is a quiet, well-camouflaged bird; however, its spring shenanigans are undoubtedly one of the most impressive spectacles in Alberta's natural history calendar. Sharp-tailed grouse perform spring courtship displays on communal "dancing grounds", called leks. Here males compete for breeding opportunities by displaying their "dancing" ability to females. Leks are found in areas with dry open ground, where dancing activity keeps the vegetation well-trampled. Leks are used over several weeks beginning in late March and are often used for years, even decades. They are an important part of sharp-tailed grouse life, and the loss...

ALBERTA, CANADA — A baby beaver who was rescued by an Canadian conservation center in 2016 and gained internet fame as the 'lonely beaver' is lonely no more, because she has found a new friend. According to Alberta Institute for Wildlife Conservation, the 5-week-old baby beaver was found alone on a golf course in northwest Calgary with wounds on her tail. The beaver kit was admitted to the conservation center for recovery, where she has since stayed. Netizens noticed the female rodent was living alone, they quickly nicknamed her "the lonely beaver." However, things are about to change for the better. Earlier this year, a 2-year-old male beaver was admitted to the conservation center after he was found in a storm drain with a bite wound on his lower back. As beavers live better when they have a companion, the conservation center decided to introduce the two to each other. According to their handlers, the two are now best friends, and since they haven't reached to the age for breeding yet, their relationship is purely platonic. These two adorable beavers will be released together in June 2018. Since caring for wildlife is generally expensive, the conservation center has set up a GoFundMe for the pair's medical costs, which are expected to amount to $23,000. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Go to https://www.patreon.com/tomonews and become a Patron now TomoNews is now on Patreon and we've got some cool perks for our hardcore fans.

Sharp-tailed grouse perform spring courtship displays on communal "dancing grounds", called leks. Here males compete for breeding opportunities by displaying their "dancing" ability to females. Leks are found in areas with dry open ground, where dancing activity keeps the vegetation well-trampled. Leks are used over several weeks beginning in late March and are often used for years, even decades. They are an important part of sharp-tailed grouse life, and the loss of suitable lek habitat can be a limiting factor for sharp-tailed grouse in Alberta. Don't Cut In On a Dance Leks are an integral part of the lifecycle of prairie grouse. Active leks should never be approached, as any disturbance to the birds may disrupt breeding activities and result in the abandonment of the lek. The locations of active and historical leks are of great interest to grouse biologists. To report a lek, contact Alberta Conservation Association (ACA). Help Conserve Alberta's Wild Side! Biologists monitor and survey sharp-tailed grouse to better understand their behaviour, population, distribution and relative abundance. This information helps determine hunting bag limits, but also helps to recover the species in areas where it has declined. You can contribute to this science by working cooperatively with biologists and organizations such as ACA. Together we can make a difference and conserve Alberta's wild side!
