Sulphur 8 Mile Stone’s Sheep

The Sulphur 8 Mile (S8M) Stone’s Sheep Project developed as a result of oil and gas pre-tenure plan requirements in the Muskwa-Kechika Management Area of northern British Columbia. The goal was to understand the potential impacts of resource development on Stone’s sheep populations, and identify management strategies for consideration in resource planning.

Over 5 years, we marked and monitored 141 Stone’s sheep for health assessments, adult survival rates, causes of mortality, habitat use and population trend analyses. You can read the Executive Summary here
