The Five-Year Plan for Species at Risk in British Columbia identifies high-level strategic actions the Government of BC plans to take to improve management of species at risk, while balancing the province’s economic, environmental and social priorities.

Themes for success of the five-year plan include:

  • Improve species conservation through management at the ecosystem and landscape scale;
  • Provide the best available information to support identification, management and recovery of species at risk;
  • Encourage British Columbians to embrace stewardship of species at risk across all lands;
  • Apply protection for species at risk consistently across all sectors; and
  • Measure and report on government’s investments in species at risk

The Ministry of Environment and Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations are responsible for coordinating and reporting on the five-year plan, and are leading implementation of actions. Updates on activities and other plans will be available soon.
