Species At Risk
735 species have been designated at risk of extinction by COSEWIC
Canada has 194 unique ecoregions, but only 67 meet the recommended target of 10% protection.
Canada is home to much of the world’s remaining intact wilderness.
Connecting protected areas ensures species have a safe path from habitat to habitat
Climate change is causing additional problems for many species, and protected area planning must plan for areas with more stable climates.
