The proposed Recovery Strategy has been drafted with the guidance of an advisory committee comprised of representatives from provincial and territorial governments, the Parks Canada Agency, and species experts. The document identifies hibernation sites (hibernacula) as critical habitat for these species – although hibernacula are not yet known in Yukon. You can read the proposed Recovery Strategy and comment at: www.sararegistry.gc.ca/document/default_e.cfm?documentID=2475 . Following the 60-day public comment period, any comments will be considered in the completion of the final Recovery Strategy.
Note that in addition to the general public, comments are also being solicited at this time from all Yukon First Nations and Renewable Resource Councils within the species’ range, as well as the Yukon Fish and Wildlife Management Board and Yukon government.
If you wish to review the proposed Recovery Strategy please provide your feedback or comments within the 60-day comment period, by March 4, 2016. Comments may be submitted directly on the Species at Risk Public Registry at www.sararegistry.gc.ca/document/default_e.cfm?documentID=2475 or they may be provided to Saleem Dar at firstname.lastname@example.org.
