HABISask is an interactive mapping tool available for recreational hunting, angling and wildlife viewing released earlier this week by the Saskatchewan Conservation Data Centre (SKCDC).
The mapping tool geolocates angling waters and provides details on species and and stocking history. In addition to fishing, HABISask also provides valuable information on wildlife management zones for hunters, rare and endangered species, and protected wildlife habitats.
The SKCDC reminds general users in their Data Sharing Agreement (see page 9) that information on rare species and habitats is sensitive and should be used for conservation purposes only. Although this agreement is intended for non-general users, it's important to consider that many of the locations listed on HABISask are still of environmental concern and may be at risk.
