More Information

Despite the cultural and ecological importance of ksisskstaki (beaver) little is known about their presence in Alberta’s streams and rivers. By searching through satellite imagery for beaver dams and lodges in the waterways of the Kainai Nation (Blood Tribe) in southern Alberta, “Beavers from Space” seeks to determine where beaver are present on the landscape and where they are not. This information will inform riparian (river ecosystem) restoration locations, focusing on areas that beaver could be present (good habitat) but are absent.
