New Species and Ecosystems at Risk Reports

The BC Ministry of the Environment has released two reports on the results of the Species and Ecosystems at Risk (SEAR) Local Government Working Group surveys. The Local Government Survey Report and the Provincial Government Survey Report will serve as a baseline for monitoring how local and provincial governments are addressing the recommendations set out in an earlier discussion paper.

Recommendations focus on: increasing local government awareness, facilitating use of effective tools and techniques, identifying and collaborating on shared responsibilities, conducting ecosystem mapping and encouraging data sharing, and engaging landowners in SEAR habitat protection.

Further information on the SEAR initiative including tools for accessing data about species and ecosystems at risk is available at the Species & Ecosystems at Risk webpage. For more information, please contact Lynn Campbell, BC Ministry of Environment.
