Wildlife includes all non-domesticated plants, animals and other organisms.

Domesticating wild plant and animal species for human benefit has occurred many times all over the planet, and has a major impact on the environment, both positive and negative.

Distinct forms of wildlife can be found in all the various ecosystems throughout the South Saskatchewan River Sub-basin. While the term in popular culture usually refers to animals that are untouched by human factors, most agree that wildlife around the world continues to be impacted by human activities.
