|Swift Fox by Cliff Wallis|
In 1978, Swift Fox were thought to be gone forever. Today, there are over 650 found in the mixed grass prairie near the Saskatchewan-Alberta border, within and around Grasslands National Park. About the size of a housecat, they can keep pace with a Jackrabbit at more than 60 km/hour.
Govenlock supports an expanding population of successfully reintroduced Swift Fox. Nature Canada—with the support of our members—is working to have Govenlock established as a National Wildlife Area to ensure stronger protections for Swift Fox and other grassland species at risk.
