Hunting

Citizen Scientist Opportunity For Hunters

The Alberta Environment and Parks Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) surveillance program is looking for volunteers to participate in a pilot program. This pilot program will instruct deer, moose and elk hunters on how to collect tissue samples for CWD testing and evaluate the accuracy of collecting the required samples. We are looking for 500 volunteers to participate for the 2021-2022 season – sample kits and training will be provided. Please contact AEP.outreach-services@gov.ab.ca to register for this program or with any questions.
