HABISask stands for Hunting, Angling and Biodiversity Information of Saskatchewan. HABISask is the Government of Sasktatchewan's client-centred, online mapping application that consolidates new information and existing applications.
HABISask may be used to access the Saskatchewan Conservation Data Centre (SKCDC)'s species occurrence data and to obtain information on species at risk as part of your planning efforts. As you conduct project screenings to assess for at-risk species and/or related habitats, HABISask will replace the SKCDC’s Wildlife App, already used for this purpose. HABISask will provide a much improved platform including species and habitat information, basic spatial analysis tools and enhanced reporting capability.
|Please review the HABISask Users Guide to begin familiarizing with the new application.|
The SKCDC has two levels of data access: General User and Detailed User. General Users access the application without a sign-in account and have access to locality information and level of rarity.
Detailed Users can access detailed information for the Rare and Endangered Species map layer within HABISask. Detailed users have read and understand the SKCDC Training Manual and have signed a Data Sharing Agreement with the Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment. These users may sign-in and have access to location data, information on what the species is, plus additional information on date of observation, observer, biological data, etc.
Please review the training manual for information on conservation ranks, the SKCDC database, element occurrences, sensitivity issues, external data use guidelines, and more.

HABISask will continue to improve as new functions and data are added to the application. The Ministry of Environment is looking for your feedback as HABISask undergoes functionality and data improvements in the months ahead. Please submit your feedback through the "Contact Us" button found within HABISask. Look for additional information such as species distribution layers; integrating data from other sources (e.g., transportation, energy, etc.) and more extensive ecological information as the app evolves.
