Barrens Willow (Salix jejuna Fernald)
On behalf of the
Braya Recovery Team, for the Department of Tourism, Culture and Recreation, Government of Newfoundland and Labrador
Under the Accord for the Protection of Species at Risk (1996), the federal, provincial, and territorial governments agreed to work together on legislation, programs, and policies to protect wildlife species at risk throughout Canada.
In the spirit of cooperation of the Accord, the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador has given permission to the Government of Canada to adopt the Recovery strategy for Barrens Willow under Section 44 of the Species at Risk Act (SARA). Details are provided in an Addendum to this document.
As of September 2006, and until the federal Minister of Environment determines otherwise or the Department of Environment and Conservation of Newfoundland and Labrador formally amends this document, this recovery strategy is now the recovery strategy of the Minister of the Environment of Canada for this species.
