The goal of the Pygmy
Whitefish Recovery Plan is to maintain the existing population. The plan
proposes to accomplish this goal by:
- Mitigating the risk of human-caused
population loss due to an accidental event
- Developing a plan for population
recovery if severe population loss does occur
This draft was developed using the input from
directly affected stakeholders. We are now seeking input from all Albertans.
Please review the draft recovery plan, and provide
feedback on the risks identified to populations, and the strategies and actions
proposed to reduce and respond to those risks.
Your input will be carefully considered and used in
making a final draft plan. A summary of the feedback received and how it was
used in the final draft of the plan will be provided when it becomes available.
The final draft recovery plan is presented to the Endangered Species
Conservation Committee, and then is forwarded on to the Minister of Environment
and Parks for approval. The Endangered Species Conservation Committee is
composed of stakeholder representatives appointed by the Minister.
The Pygmy Whitefish Recovery Plan survey will be available until 4:30 pm on Monday, July 2, 2018.Privacy Statement
