To promote and enhance increasing populations of indigenous wild sheep in Alberta through the funding of programs that support responsible wildlife management, conservation education, youth involvement and the preservation of our hunting heritage.
Wild Sheep Foundation Alberta was started in 1999 and is a proud member of the National Wild Sheep Foundation. WSFA is a member-driven organization that connects hunting guides and outfitters, wildlife researchers, habitat conservationists, sportsmen and women, and the general public. Our two major fundraising events take place in the spring in the communities of Red Deer and Edson Alberta. With continued downsizing of government agencies, more onus is being placed on conservation organizations to initiate, manage and fund wildlife and habitat enhancement programs. Past issues of the WSFA newsletter are posted for your reading enjoyment. Check back often as we update our photo gallery on a regular basis.

Rocky Mountain Bighorn males, called rams, are famous for their large, curled horns. These impressive growths are a symbol of status and a weapon used in epic battles across the Rocky Mountains.

Sheep have soft hooves with hard outer rims that give them good footing on precarious ledges. However, the two parts of the hoof are not independently movable. Thus, bighorns are not as agile as mountain goats on difficult terrain.
