Alberta’s Westslope Cutthroat Trout Designated as Threatened

March 30, 2013

Extract from the federal Canada Gazette, designated Alberta’s population of Westslope cutthroat trout an endangered species under the federal Species at Risk Act. Native populations of this fish have been “drastically reduced, by almost 80%, due to over-exploitation, habitat degradation and hybridization/competition with non-native trout.”

It is my belief that Non-profit organizations like the Alberta Wilderness Association provide a clear framework that creates opportunities for Albertans to actively participate in the protection of their provinces resources.
