The Burrowing Owl is gone from Manitoba, and experts suggest it will disappear from the rest of Canada if nothing is done. Reintroducing birds into the wild is an essential step being taken and the ongoing research into best methods for captive breeding and release are giving these birds their best chance for survival.
Canada is fortunate to be home to thousands of wildlife species and vast areas of land and water on which they depend. Unfortunately many of these species are in decline, due in part to human activities. There are currently over 600 species of plants and animals at risk of being lost from Canada. There isn’t any one culprit, but rather a combination of factors that are leading to species decline.
Thankfully, there is hope. Through the conservation efforts undertaken by all sectors of Canadian society, many species are doing better. The Canadian Wildlife Federation is proud to be part of the movement designed to bring a brighter future for Canadian wildlife.
