For the purposes of this assessment, draft documents were sent to professional biologists from government and industry, along with wild species experts from the natural history community. The comments and suggestions made by these individuals were compiled and discussed. The final scores and rankings, however, remain the sole responsibility of the Fish and Wildlife Service, Alberta Sustainable Resource Development.
