Frances Stewart, University of Victoria
The Moraine Mesocarnivore Project; Assessing the value of Canadian human-altered landscapes for native mesocarnivore species

Frances Stewart’s research will scientifically document the wildlife community in Alberta’s Cooking Lake Moraine (CLM), a mixed-use agricultural landscape. The research could serve as a model for human-wildlife coexistence across Canada. The research aims to assess the value of Alberta’s CLM, an example human-modified landscape for all areas of human wildlife coexistence in Canada, by scientifically quantifying it’s ecological contribution to maintaining mammalian biodiversity as a fragmented landscape.
