The Province’s public consultation on B.C. species at risk wraps up on Nov. 30, giving the public just one more week to provide their feedback on the Species at Risk Engagement website: http://engage.gov.bc.ca/speciesatrisk/
The consultation, which began on Oct. 19, gives the public a forum to share their ideas on new ways to protect species at risk and support activities such as monitoring, research and stewardship.
The public can also participate on the website by replying to comments, by voting to agree or disagree with comments, and by signing up to receive email updates.
The website also showcases 12 of the shared recovery efforts currently ongoing in B.C. for species such as the Coastal Mountain Goat, the Purple Martin, the whitebark pine, and the Rocky Mountain Ridged Mussel.
The Ministry of Environment will use the input received to identify priorities for new policy and programs in the months and years ahead as part of B.C.’s Five-Year Plan for Species at Risk.
