- Firstly, Edmonton has the Royal Alberta Museum. The biome my city belongs in would be considered aspen parkland which basically consists of grasslands, prairies, savannas etc... I don't know about you, but I consider red squirrels quite notable because I rarely see them. Lastly, in comparison to the the Philippines, I would consider Edmonton's biodiversity rate to be between low and medium. Some ecosystems in Alberta are actually beginning to decline.
- The burrowing owl would be one of Alberta's most endangered species
- Other questions:
- To approach the second question, I had to search up the answer on Google instead because I found the website to be difficult to use. When I searched up the endangered species in Alberta, it showed me three different species with "alberta" in their name and pretty much all of them were stable.
- However, I believe that keeping these records about the animals of different ecosystems in our area is important so we can keep track of how much of our actions affect the environment. It also allows us to see how food chains are affected when one species has been extirpated from the local area.
- Lastly, this question is important to ask everyone because I think it makes us more aware of our surroundings and our actions that affect it. (It makes us pay attention.)
