Initiative: 
Recovery Strategy for the Greater Short-horned Lizard (Phrynosoma hernandesi) in Canada
Deadline: 
29 Dec 2014 (All day)

From Environment Canada:

The Government of Canada is committed to working with interested parties to ensure that species at risk are protected. The Species at Risk Act supports this commitment by providing the public with an opportunity to comment on proposed recovery documents.

 

Environment Canada is inviting you to comment on the proposed Recovery Strategy for the Greater Short-horned Lizard (Phrynosoma hernandesi) in Canada.

 

Greater Short-horned Lizard is listed as Endangered under the federal Species at Risk Act (SARA). More information on the species is available in the attached Summary of the Proposed Greater Short-horned Lizard RS. Under SARA, recovery strategies must be developed for all endangered species, as well as those listed as extirpated or threatened.  Recovery strategies are planning documents whose purpose is to reduce known threats and to help species at risk recover. The proposed Recovery Strategy for the Greater Short-horned Lizard in Canada is posted on the Species at Risk Public Registry for a 60-day public comment period.   You can read the proposed Recovery Strategy and comment at: http://www.sararegistry.gc.ca/document/default_e.cfm?documentID=2655

 

Alternatively, you can send your comments on the recovery strategy by e-mail to:

 

SARA [dot] PNR [at] ec [dot] gc [dot] ca

 

If you have questions or concerns, please contact us at the above e-mail address or call us or send a letter to:

After the public comment period ends on December 29, 2014, Environment Canada will review comments and integrate them as appropriate. The final version of the recovery strategy will be posted on the Species at Risk Public Registry.      

 

Thank you for your interest in the protection of species at risk in Canada.
