At first glance, it may not be easy to see a connection between good cattle grazing land and habitat for wildlife. A new project spearheaded by the Alberta Conservation Association, called Species Assessments & Ranching Partnership (SHARP) operates between Calgary and  Peace River, works with producers from the cattle industry to improve cattle grazing land while maintaining and enhancing wildlife habitat.

This video looks at one example west of Edmonton called the Tomahawk Ranch. Funders include Alberta Fish and Game Association, Canadian Agricultural Partnership, Environment, Climate Change Canada, and Wildlife Preservation Canada.
