Data and Resources
|Latitude:||48.0° to 60.0°|
|Longitude:||-139.5° to -113.5°|
The dataset was developed to coordinate and maintain the distribution of bighorn and thinhorn sheep in BC based on historical knowledge and population monitoring data.
This dataset is intended to:
The data does not include specific occurrence records of bighorn and thinhorn sheep in the province, rather it shows their generalized distribution.
The dataset was built using core home range data and then generalized to include additional areas beyond the core use areas.
