AbstractThe highest number of species at risk is in the southern areas of Canada where human activity is most extensive and intensive. As of May 2002, 30 animal and plant species had disappeared in Canada. Eleven of these species are no longer found anywhere on the Earth. For most species the greatest threat is the alteration of habitat or essential growing conditions. The major national recovery program of endangered species in Canada is called RENEW, Recovery of Nationally Endangered Wildlife. Canada is committed to implementing sustainable development, and establishment of protected areas representing all of Canadas landscapes and species. The map shows the number of species at risk per ecoregion. Species at risk include native mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians, plants and molluscs that have been assessed as being at risk of extinction at a national level.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The map was originally published online in the Atlas of Canada, 6th Edition as an interactive digital map derived from a shapefile and mapped online using MapServer, a platform for publishing spatial data to the web. In order to preserve the geographical content of this Edition during its publication from 1999 to 2009 all the maps have been converted from their online interactive form to a raster and made available in PDF and JPEG.
