Species at Risk
How can I help?
Grasslands National Park alone likely does not have enough habitat to support
a self-sustaining ferret population. This is why the support of landowners
bordering the park is essential to re-establish the species in Canada. Even
then, this reintroduced population may need supplemental reintroductions from
time to time.
