Swift Fox

What makes Swift Foxs so Special ?

One of the tiniest foxes which might be smaller than your typical housecat in the world. It measures about 30 centimetres high at the shoulder.

OOPS!

Named for its speed, the swift fox can reach 60 kilometres per hour. Where present, swift foxes are indicators an intact grassland ecosystem.

Where Do they Live in
Canada ?

This cat-size fox was once at home in grasslands throughout Canada’s southern prairies, of which 80 per cent have now been converted to intensive agricultural use. Once common in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, the swift fox vanished from the Canadian prairies in the 1930s.

What problems do Swift Foxs Facing ?

Swift foxes include lack of suitable habitat, predation by coyotes, and vehicle collisions. Moreover, along with losing habitat, swift foxes were also caught in traps and died by poisoning by some land-owners. The last sighting of a wild swift fox was in 1938.

Save the Swift Fox

In 1973, Swift Fox were brought from the U.S. for a captive breeding program, and reintroduction of the swift fox into the wild in Saskatchewan and southern Alberta began 10 years later. After being declared extirpated (locally extinct) from Canada in 1978, the swift fox population had grown to 647 in 2009.

While the Swift Fox status moved from Endangered to Threatened under SARA in 2012, the current population of swift fox only occupies three per cent of its former range.
