SCIENCE-BASED BIODIVERSITY INFO — listed spp and ecosystems (Canadian, BC, AB, and USA SAR reports) Each year  a variety of documents on a variety of topics are assembled and sent out – we have compiled many of the reports through links.  Some of these documents are not entirely relevant to BC but certainly the topics are relevant!

  • Assessment and Status Reports (Canada);
  • Recovery Strategies (Canada);
  • Mgmt Plans (Canada and BC);
  • Recovery Plans (BC and Alberta);
  • Conservation Strategies (Alberta);
  • Conservation Mgmt Plans (Alberta);
  • Recovery Actions (Alberta);
  • Annual Reports; and
  • other SAR documents
