Check out an infographic highlighting our analysis of wetland habitat and corridors.

Through the Call of the Wetland citizen science program, we confirmed the presence of three species of amphibian in Calgary. However, wetland loss, degradation and barriers (such as roads and residential development) threaten their continued survival. We completed an analysis of core wetlands and corridors to identify where restoration or mitigation could improve abundance to ultimately maintain amphibian biodiversity. We worked with Mount Royal University information design graduate Rosey Eason to create an infographic to highlight the results. Check it out here!
