Description:
Abstract: This dataset is produced for the Government of Alberta and is available to the general public. Please consult the Distribution Information of this metadata for the appropriate contact to acquire this dataset. Sharp-tailed Grouse (Tympanuchus phasianellus) require open spaces for displaying, and areas of grass and low shrubs for nesting and brood rearing. In Alberta, Sharp-tailed Grouse are most common in the Grassland and Parkland regions, with localized populations in the Boreal Forest, Foothills and, to a lesser extent, the Rocky Mountains, where open, grassland-like habitats exist. A Sharp-tailed Grouse survey layer has been developed for the purpose of informing operators where lek surveys are to occur. This species has breeding leks at discrete locations. Sharp-tailed Grouse survey is based upon the boundaries of the Grassland and Parkland Natural Regions, as well as Provincial Grazing Reserves in the Boreal region of the province.
Purpose: To provide industrial operators and government departments information regarding the probable location of Sharp-tailed Grouse habitat for the application of appropriate wildlife surveys. Proponents are recommended to survey for Sharp-tailed Grouse leks and respect buffers where they occur.
Supplemental Information: Sharp-tailed Grouse data have been endorsed by Alberta Environment and Parks.

Access Constraints: For general public use.
Use Constraints: The Wildlife Sensitivity data is available free of a charge as a service to Albertans. These wildlife feature layers provide industrial operators, government departments and the general public with the best information currently available on the extent of wildlife sensitivities. A few items should be highlighted on the issue of data usage. Fish and Wildlife Policy Branch of Alberta Environment and Parks, Government of Alberta asks that any liability for any misuse or misinterpretation of the data, should the data be inappropriately mapped, is the responsibility of the user. Additionally it is the user's responsibility to ensure that the most up-to date and correct data is used. Alberta Environment and Parks reserves the right to update and change the Wildlife Sensitivity data. Finally, while all users are free to download and use the Wildlife Sensitivity data for information and planning uses (e.g., reports to clients), we ask that digital and hard copy maps (other than those used for client reports) are not be distributed for commercial purposes.
