Episode 406: Giving A Hoot For Species At Risk

Species at Risk legislation is what it sounds like – policies that are put in place to protect all species thats population is deemed, scientifically, to be in a precarious position within an environment. This can range from aquatic plant life to terrestrial mammals, and small flowers to big birds. Remarkably, British Columbia has no provincial species-at-risk legislation.

Right now, as part of their five-year plan to protect species at risk (which doesn’t include developing standalone species at risk legislation), BC is accepting comments on a series of topics. This unique opportunity is only available through the end of November, and getting educated is the first step to putting together compelling responses. Defender Radio was joined by Joe Foy, National Campaign Director at Wilderness Committee to talk about species at risk legislation in BC – and how we can effectively participate in this government engagement initiative.
