Public Comment Period: Management Plan for the Monarch in Canada

Initiative: 
Proposed Management Plan for the Monarch (Danaus plexippus) in Canada
Deadline: 
8 Dec 2014 (All day)

From Species at Risk Recovery Unit, Canadian Wildlife Service, Prairie & Northern Region:

We are writing to notify you that the proposed Management Plan for the Monarch in Canada was posted on the Species at Risk Public Registry on October 9, 2014, for a 60-day public comment period which ends on December 8, 2014.

 

Monarch has been listed as “Special Concern” under the federal Species at Risk Act (SARA), because, although this species has a population of millions to over one billion individuals, it is vulnerable during  its overwintering - the most sensitive stage of its annual cycle.  Information on this species can be found in the enclosed summary of the proposed Management Plan as well as at:

The proposed Management Plan provides background information on the species, identifies threats to the species and its habitat, establishes management objectives, and recommends broad strategies to help guide the actions needed to manage Monarch in Canada. You can download a copy of the proposed Management Plan from the Species at Risk Public Registry website:

We invite you to review the proposed Management Plan for the Monarch in Canada and provide your feedback or comments within the 60-day comment period.  Any comments you provide will be considered in the completion of the final Management Plan.  If you are not the appropriate person to contact regarding species at risk, it would be helpful if you could inform us to whom we should send our communications.  Comments can be submitted at the website provided above, using the attached questionnaire,  or directly by contacting Environment Canada at:
