Wildlife Tracking

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

Where are wildlife tracking studies taking place?

The 2024 wildlife tracking studies will take place along sections of existing railway routes in Ontario, from Twin Elm up to Ottawa and down to Vars, and in Québec near Laval to the 740 highway in Québec City.

Why study wildlife tracking?

The habitat of some mammals are protected and important for Indigenous groups, communities and Nations. By conducting mammal surveys to determine their locations, migration routes, numbers and habitats, HFR planners will understand how these might change while building and operating the new railway and determine any necessary protection measures.
