Description:
Abstract: In Alberta, the Sharp-tailed Grouse (Tympanuchus phasianellus) is ranked as Sensitive, and populations are believed to be declining in areas where significant natural habitat loss has occurred. Lek sites are important habitats for breeding, displaying and social interaction, with the majority of activity occurring within 1.5 km of a lek. Sharp-tailed Grouse have breeding leks at discrete locations. Sharp-tailed Grouse leks and buffers were based upon all known and confirmed population locations in Government of Alberta datasets from 2000 onward. In cases where leks occurred within close proximity (< 250m), the most recent location was used. A 20m radius polygon was used to represent lek locations. Leks were buffered by distances of 500m for high disturbance activities and 100m for low disturbance activities.
Purpose: To provide industrial operators and government departments information regarding the location of Sharp-tailed Grouse leks. Proponents are expected to respect buffers where they occur, and survey for leks where required to minimize inadvertent lek damage and confirm lek occupancy.
Supplemental Information: Sharp-tailed Grouse leks and buffers 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.
