In 2017, the ABMI publicly released the Biodiversity Browser (BB) on its website, as a kind of "encyclopedia of life" for Alberta species. The intent of the BB has been to broadly share ABMI data and information on Alberta species to support decision-making by land-use managers and policy makers in the province. Over the last year, the BB has expanded significantly: we've added new species profiles on amphibians, as well as new analysis on "sector effects".

We're always looking to improve the usability of the BB and incorporate new content that users are looking for. In collaboration with Ducks Unlimited Canada, and with your input, we're hoping to better incorporate wetland species into the BB. With that in mind, we request about six minutes of your time to provide feedback on the current BB. If you like, enter your contact info at the end of the survey for a chance to win a 'thank-you' prize (1 grand prize of a $50 MEC giftcard and 2 'consolation' prizes of a $10 Tim Hortons card).
 
Thank you for your time and feedback!
