Wildlife values site

The wildlife values area and site datasets represent the consolidation of 13 wildlife data classes collected by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry. The data estimates locations used by wildlife for various reasons, including:

  • breeding
  • calving and fawning
  • denning
  • feeding
  • staging
  • nesting
  • wintering
  • general habitat areas
  • nurseries
  • travel corridors

Locations are represented as points (site) or polygons (area) and may be related to a specific species or described more generally.

Wildlife values data is most often used to support policy and legislation associated with the Crown Forest Sustainability Act. The data may also be used to inform a wide range of resource management activities and decisions.

There are additional sensitive features related to provincially tracked species and species at risk that are not available as part of the open data package. Sensitive features are subject to licensing and approvals and may be requested by contacting lio@ontario.ca.
