After a century of farming, ever wonder how much native habitat remains in the South Saskatchewan Region? This report describes the status of human footprint and biodiversity in the Grassland Natural Region in the South Saskatchewan Planning Region (SSPR). The ecological health of the SSPR depends, in part, on the thousands of native species that live in this area. The ABMI assessed the status of 85 species and found them to the 54% intact and grassland-associated species had the lowest biodiversity intactness. The information on this report provides the baseline condition of the SSPR and can be used as the foundation for evaluating future outcomes in resource management in the region. The report also includes a spotlight on native prairie habitat.
