WCS Canada Comments - 10th Year Review of the ESA - February 2019
In response to the discussion paper on the 10th year review of Ontario's ESA, we provide comments on the implementation of the Act moving forward. Rather than making changes to the existing legislation, we recommend the provincial government focus instead on improving implementation of the Act by utilizing existing tools in the ESA to provide more meaningful protections for species at risk. We contend that more strategic implementation of the ESA can be accomplished without significant additional expenditures, and that failure to invest appropriately now in species at risk conservation will lead to escalating costs in the future as biodiversity deteriorates.
WCS Canada Comments – Public Consultation on the Draft Conservation Plan for Grizzly Bears in Yukon – October 2018
As a strong supporter of efforts to ensure a sustainable future for grizzly bear populations in Yukon we provide comments with the hope that the Draft Plan becomes a more effective document. Through both a broad-scale analysis and detailed comments we assess the content and focus of the proposed document. The document in its current form fails to acknowledge that in order for grizzly bears to persist, limits to human activity and intensity of landscape use are necessary. Wherever possible we provide recommendations for changes to the plan.
