The Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep is the provincial mammal of Alberta and the state animal of Colorado. Join the Wild Sheep Foundation Alberta to help with their preservation. Wild Sheep Foundation Alberta
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. Becoming a member of Wild Sheep Foundation Alberta is an opportunity to be involved in an organization dedicated to the promotion and funding of sound wildlife management practices.

Project Funding Report

Alberta Grizzly Bear
Survey 2010 - Video

In winter, bighorn herds move to lower-elevation mountain pastures. In all seasons, these animals eat available grass, seeds, and plants.
BIGHORN SHEEP TRANSPLANT

In October 2004, WSFA approached Alberta Fish and Wildlife about transplanting sheep onto Ram Mountain.

Rams and ewes were obtained from Cadomin for transplant to Ram Mountain in 2004, and again in 2005.
Alberta Fish & Wildlife officers and a veterinarian were present.

In December 2005, WSFA and the University of Alberta began a study of cougar population status, habitat use, and predation in Alberta's Clearwater County.
COUGAR POPULATION STUDY

Dogs were used to find and tree cougars so they could be tranquilized and have radio frequency collars applied to them.
