The Ontario government is currently reviewing the Endangered Species Act “to improve protections for species at risk, consider modern and innovative approaches to achieve positive outcomes for species at risk, as well as to look for ways to streamline approvals and provide clarity to support economic development.” We need experts to weigh in to make sure any changes made to the act are evidence-based. We don't have long to act - a proposal has been posted online and comments from the public are being accepted until March 4th. Below is a list of resources and background information on the Ontario Endangered Species Act to help you prepare your comments - thank you to Dr. Sheila Colla and others for providing us with these helpful resources.
Please consider submitting a comment and sharing this resource list with your peers!
