Minister’s 2010 Round Table on the Species at Risk Act

December 20, 2010

Gatineau, Québec

Meeting Overview

The Species at Risk Act (SARA) requires that, at least once every two years, the federal Minister of the Environment convene a round table of persons interested in matters respecting the protection of wildlife species at risk in Canada to advise the Minister on those matters.

The third SARA round table was held in Gatineau on December 20, 2010 and involved a group of conservation organizations with an interest in the Species at Risk Act including representatives from Nature Canada, WWF Canada, The Nature Conservancy of Canada, Ducks Unlimited Canada, Trout Unlimited Canada, and the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society.

Overall, the discussion focused on national conservation efforts and the role that SARA plays in contributing to those efforts. No written recommendations were received.
