Agri-Environmental Indicator – Wildlife Habitat Capacity
Wildlife habitat capacity is the extent and quality of habitat that can support a diversity of species. When we convert wilderness to agricultural land we lose a great deal of wildlife habitat capacity. However, we can manage agricultural land to regain some of this capacity. Agricultural land includes not only fields for food production but also other types of land cover. Wooded areas, wetlands, shoreline areas and natural pastures on agricultural land are important habitats for wildlife. The indicator shows how well wildlife habitat is maintained for feeding and reproduction while producing the food we need.
Products in this data series present results for predefined areas as defined by the Soil Landscapes of Canada (SLC v.3.2) data series, uniquely identified by SOIL_LANDSCAPE_ID values.
Data is provided for the following years: 2000, 2005, 2010, and 2015. The annual results respect provincial boundaries which can be of use when analyzing results per province.
