Conservation in Action in Banff National Park

Recovering a species at risk one fish at a time!
Banff National Park is home to 13 populations of threatened Westslope cutthroat trout. These fish are a species at risk. They need cold clear water, cover and clean gravel for spawning. Their particular habitat needs make them excellent indicators of aquatic ecosystem health. One of the main threats to their survival is hybridization with rainbow trout, a non-native species to the park.
Parks Canada is working to restore Westslope cutthroat trout populations. The Rainbow Lake project is helping support critical Westslope habitat downstream and allow this threatened species to thrive!
