Deadline to comment on the proposed Recovery Strategy for Skillet Clubtail (Gomphus ventricosus) in Canada
Wednesday 19 May 2021 -  - Wednesday 19 May 2021 
We want to hear from you!

The Government of Canada is committed to working with interested parties to ensure that species at risk are protected. The Species at Risk Act supports this commitment by providing the public with an opportunity to comment on proposed recovery documents.

Environment and Climate Change Canada is inviting you to comment on the proposed Recovery Strategy for Skillet Clubtail (Gomphus ventricosus) in Canada.

The Skillet Clubtail was listed as Endangered under Schedule 1 of the federal Species at Risk Act (SARA) in 2017. A Skillet Clubtail is a dark brown-black dragonfly. Identification features include green eyes, clear wings, and a “club tail” with yellow markings. The current confirmed Canadian population is restricted to a small section of the Saint John River watershed in New Brunswick and to the Batiscan River watershed in Quebec. Specific threats are unknown but changes to the species’ habitat, including changes to water quality, are likely the greatest threat to Skillet Clubtail.

On February 19, 2021, Environment and Climate Change Canada posted the proposed Recovery Strategy for Skillet Clubtail (Gomphus ventricosus) in Canada on the Species at Risk Public Registry. A recovery strategy is a document that provides information on a species at risk. It identifies the primary threats to the species and its habitat, sets out the population and distribution objectives, and recommends broad strategies to be implemented in order to achieve these objectives. It can also identify Critical Habitat for the species and describe activities that are likely to destroy this habitat. You can read the proposed recovery strategy and comment at: https://species-registry.canada.ca/index-en.html#/documents/3329.

After the public comment period ends on May 19, 2021, Environment and Climate Change Canada will review comments and integrate them as appropriate, after which the final version of the recovery strategy will be posted on the Species at Risk Public Registry.

Thank you for your interest in the protection of species at risk in Canada.
