New Hunting, Angling and Biodiversity Mapping Tool Now Available Online

Released on November 8, 2016

The Ministry of Environment launched a new client-centred, online mapping tool called HABISask (Hunting, Angling and Biodiversity Information of Saskatchewan) that combines new and existing information on hunting, angling and biodiversity.

“The online mapping tool will help you plan your hunting and angling adventure, assist you in the early planning stages for projects or environmental reviews, or help you protect Saskatchewan’s wildlife through your conservation activities,” Environment Minister Scott Moe said.  “HABISask is also accessible on mobile devices such as your smart phone or PC tablet.”

HABISask offers mapping information and tools based on four map themes:
  • Hunting includes wildlife management zones, game preserves, road corridor game preserves, wildlife refuges, bird sanctuaries, wildlife biologist management areas and conservation officer field offices.
  • Angling includes water body locations, fish species presence, fish stocking history, special regulations, bathymetric (underwater depth) map links, fisheries management zones, fisheries biologist management areas and conservation officer field offices.
  • Project screening includes rare and endangered species observations and ecological protection specialist districts.
  • Wildlife viewing includes managed areas, Saskatchewan Bird Atlas and ecoregions.
“This is a fantastic resource for our outdoor enthusiasts across the province,” Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation Executive Director Darrell Crabbe said.  “HABISask has something for everyone, whether you’re planning a hunting or angling trip, or looking for the best bird watching spots.”

HABISask provides a window to species and habitat data as well as additional spatial information sources.  By selecting one of the themes, HABISask will pre-select respective map layers and provide mapping tools to help you quickly begin your planning efforts.  If you need to select additional map layers, they are all available to enhance your mapping experience.

The HABISask tool, and additional information is available online at www.saskatchewan.ca/government/notarize-documents-queens-printer-maps-and-other-publications/maps.
