Wildlife Tracking

A wildlife tracking study focuses on tracking footprints to identify furbearers and hooved mammals. This study will help HFR planners to protect mammals while building and operating the new railway.

Where are wildlife tracking studies happening?

These studies will take place between Ottawa and de Beaujeu, just west of Montréal and from Laval to Québec City along the north side of the St. Lawrence River.

Why study wildlife tracking?

Mammals and their habitats are important to Indigenous people and local communities, and some are also protected by federal and provincial legislation. By conducting mammal studies HFR’s planners will better understand how their locations and mitigation might change while building and operating the new railway, and what’s needed to protect mammals and their habitats.

HFR and You

Good planning involves the community. Decisions are better when many perspectives are considered.
