Species At Risk - PEI

In a small, heavily settled place such as Prince Edward Island many plant and animal species can suffer from habitat loss, competition from new or invasive species and other factors.

The Prince Edward Island Wildlife Conservation Act includes provisions for the protection of species at risk and their habitats. Species at risk include plants, animals or other organisms that are considered to be endangered, threatened or of special concern because of sensitivity to human activities or natural events. 

Where can I get information on species at risk?

Information on Species at Risk in Canada and Prince Edward Island can be obtained from the Canadian Species at Risk Public Registry
