  • Did you know?

    American badgers are solitary animals that are classified as a sensitive species in Alberta. While badgers do not truly hibernate, they do conserve energy in the winter by cycling through states of torpor in which their metabolism and physical activity decrease. Breeding occurs in August, but the fetus does not implant until December – February, remaining dormant until then. Young are born in early April, eyes closed and furless. Badgers are threatened due to habitat fragmentation, loss of prey species, and due to being trapped, shot and poisoned by humans.
