Species at Risk Act (SARA) Consultation, Cooperation and Accommodation Project

This multi-year project will facilitate Indigenous communities’ and organizations’ participation in Environment and Climate Change Canada’s (ECCC) listing and recovery planning processes for terrestrial species as part of implementing the federal Species at Risk Act. CIER’s role is to support a range of activities between Indigenous communities and organizations and ECCC on developing recovery documents, sharing knowledge and language, addressing threats to terrestrial species at risk survival and recovery, and land use planning for species at risk on reserve lands and within traditional territories.

Terrestrial Species at Risk Workshop: May 7-8, 2024, in Fredericton, New Brunswick

This is part of a series of Terrestrial Species at Risk Workshops that occur every two years (previous workshops were held in 2015, 2017 and 2019). The 2024 workshop is our first time back after COVID-19, and we are excited to meet and provide a forum for discussions, building relationships, and fostering collaborations amongst those working on species at risk recovery in the Maritimes (Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island & New Brunswick). There will be opportunities for networking, collaborative presentations, and interactive roundtables.

Please RSVP to [email protected], and confirm who from your community/organization will attend the Maritime SAR Workshop by April 5th, 2024.
