What was this engagement about?
Citizens were invited to join the conversation and share their thoughts on Species at Risk in British Columbia until November 30, 2016. The Five-Year Plan for Species at Risk in British Columbia, released in 2014, committed the Province to work together and consult with all levels of government, First Nations, conservation partners, industry, and, stakeholders to ensure the successful protection of species at risk in B.C. Species at risk recovery is a shared responsibility and we all need to cooperate to ensure that we are working towards effective protection and recovery of species at risk.
In addition to sharing recent species at risk success stories from around the province as a result of numerous conservation partnership projects, British Columbians were asked for input and innovative ideas on new ways to protect species at risk and how to better support activities such as inventory, monitoring, research and stewardship programs for species at risk in our province.
How did my contribution make a difference?
The Province invited citizens to share their thoughts by joining any one of the four conversations on the Species at Risk engagement website.
The engagement ran from October 19, 2016 to November 30, 2016 and the input gathered will be used to help the Ministry of Environment improve the management of species at risk, while balancing the province’s economic, environmental and social priorities.
Together, we can ensure our province’s native plants and animals remain part of B.C.’s extraordinary natural heritage for generations to come.
