The Royal Saskatchewan Museum in conjunction with the University of Regina just concluded their first year of monitoring urban wildlife in and around Regina. The Regina Urban Wildlife Research Program began in fall 2021 and aims to provide a better understanding of what kind of wildlife is found within the city and which parts of the city provide important habitat for wildlife.
"Cities like Regina can provide valuable habitat for the conservation and management of wildlife," RSM Curator of Vertebrate Zoology Dr. Ryan Fisher said. "So far, the project has recorded 13 species of mammals on camera, ranging from moose to white-tailed deer to American mink. Interestingly, most of the observations of these large mammals occurred at night, when humans aren't as active."
