Nature NL Talk: Landbird Species at Risk in Newfoundland and Labrador

Krista Baker, Canadian Wildlife Service – Environment Canada

7:30 P.M. Thursday November 20, 2014

Memorial University, Science Building Room SN 2067

Since the federal Species at Risk Act (SARA) was passed in 2002, seven landbird species found in Newfoundland and Labrador have been listed as Endangered, Threatened, or Special Concern and three others are assessed as at-risk by the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC), but not yet listed under SARA.  One additional landbird species is listed provincially under the NL Endangered Species Act. The presentation will briefly introduce each species, describe the status of its recovery planning, outline proposed and ongoing recovery implementation, and summarize preliminary results. It will also identify ways that citizens can become involved with research and population recovery initiatives.

Krista Baker is a Species at Risk Biologist with Environment Canada – Canadian Wildlife Service in St. John’s and has been working in various roles related to conservation for more than 10 years.
