Conserving Biological Diversity


Key Indicators

Forest type and age
The type and age of forests are important factors to consider when managing Saskatchewan's natural resources. Forest management in Saskatchewan is designed to result in a forest age structure that emulates natural disturbance.

Protected areas
Protecting unique ecosystems, along with those representative of the landscape, helps to maintain biological diversity.

Woodland caribou habitat
The quantity, quality and availability of habitat is an essential component of species management.

Genetic conservation of native commercial tree species
Genetic diversity is important for maintaining commercially or culturally important traits of tree species.

Species at risk in the commercial forest
The mission of the Saskatchewan species at risk program is to protect species from extirpation or extinction and to prevent new species and ecosystems from becoming threatened with extinction.

Moose in the provincial forest
In the boreal forest, moose select different habitats at different times of the year and require a mixed forest landscape year-round to meet their various needs.

Marten populations in the provincial forest
Marten are an important part of the food chain in the boreal transition area of the province.
