  • 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...

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.

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.

Andy Ridge describes what Albertans said at "Water Conversations", the public consultations on water policy for Alberta, conducted in the spring of 2013. As the Calgary Flood happened the day of his presentation, Andy Ridge talked about Alberta's emerging challenges in water policy. He discusses integrated resource management as a cornerstone and the development of management frameworks to address cumulative effects through regional thresholds. Agriculture, Alberta's development of unconventional energy (oilsands and shale gas and oil) and growth of its communities are increasing pressure on water. Water Conversations was about talking to Albertans about how Alberta moves forward. Water Conversations covered four topics: healthy lakes, hydraulic fracturing, drinking water and wastewater treatment and water management. Water Conservations involved 44 sessions in 20 locations attended by 1300 Albertans. Using a world café format, this is what they heard from Albertans: education and access to information, increased enforcement, more action, less talk, more accountability. Water conservation in resource development was a strong message from Albertans. Andy Ridge concludes with a summary what will come back from the consultations and how that links to work in progress (the wetland policy) and items that require more work (water allocations (water licencing)). Since he was speaking to a Watershed Planning Advisory Council (WPAC), he emphasized short-term directions that may involve WPACs (items in bold). Andy Ridge is Director of Water Policy, Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development. His presentation was the keynote address at the Red Deer River Watershed Alliance's AGM, June 20, 2013.
