Jim Prentice Wildlife Corridor will provide Connectivity in the Alberta Portion of the Crown

The Jim Prentice Wildlife Corridor is a legacy project that honours Alberta’s late Premier, Jim Prentice and his commitment to conservation. The corridor is roughly five kilometers wide from east to west and will connect crown forest reserve lands in the north to the Castle parks network, as well as to Waterton Lakes, and Glacier National Parks to the south.

The pass naturally funnels wildlife like grizzly bear, cougar and elk north and south through the Rocky Mountains and across Highway 3 – conserving a wildlife corridor through the Crowsnest Pass will benefit wildlife that travel through the Rocky Mountains in Canada and the United States. This natural link between protected spaces has been a priority of environmental organizations for decades.
