WCS Canada Comments - Wildlife Management Strategy Discussion Paper - November 2016
Ontario’s discussion paper, Building a Wildlife Management Strategy for Ontario, introduces a change in Wildlife Landscape Zones that will used to scale up certain provincial decisions related to wildlife management and otherwise describes the history of wildlife management and threats and “emerging trends”, descriptions of laws that “govern the protection, management, and use of Ontario’s wildlife populations and habitat”. We express concern about the limited scope of this strategy and lack of integration with the pursuit of broader biodiversity objectives.
