About the project

Prairie cougars have received little attention throughout the province.

We are developing a baseline study to uncover the whereabouts of this secretive and elusive species.

The reports of cougar encounters gathered from the public will be compiled into a database. The date and location of each sighting will be georeferenced onto a map to analyze for various ecological factors such as: population distribution, habitat selection, ecological behaviour, etc. This information could be further utilized as a jumping off point for future and more technical research that otherwise couldn't be performed.

There is much to discover!
