Species at Risk, Recovery Strategy, Public Consultation

The Species at Risk Act recognizes the need for consultation with those who may be affected by the conservation of species at risk.

A Recovery Strategy focuses on describing, with the best available knowledge, the biology and life history of the species, its habitat, and possible threats to its survival. Additionally, the document identifies the recovery objectives, approaches recommended to meet these objectives, and identifies critical habitat for this threatened plant.

The Species at Risk Act recognizes that protecting the habitat of species at risk is key to their conservation. On private and provincial lands critical habitat protection will be provided by voluntary measures, such as stewardship agreements, and/or the laws of the province. However, if no such provision provides effective protection of critical habitat, the Species at Risk Act prohibition that states that no person shall destroy any part of critical habitat can be applied.

All Canadians have a shared responsibility to protect species at risk and ensure healthy ecosystems for future generations.
