This document identifies the recovery strategies that are deemed necessary, based on the best available scientific and traditional information, to recover Sand-verbena Moth populations in B.C. Recovery actions to achieve the goals and objectives identified herein are subject to the priorities and budgetary constraints of participatory agencies and organizations. These goals, objectives, and recovery approaches may be modified in the future to accommodate new objectives and findings. Sand-verbena Moth occurs in the Strait of Georgia - Puget Sound region of British Columbia (B.C.) and Washington State, respectively. Globally, there are nine known locations. Surveys from 2001 to 2007 show four locations in B.C. Sand-verbena Moth locations are regionally isolated and there is probably no movement of individuals between locations. Preliminary studies imply that each location is composed of a series of subpopulations, which likely have a direct correlation with the patchy distribution of yellow sand-verbena in coastal spits and dunes. Actual numbers of individuals within any given population in B.C. is unknown. Success in the recovery of this species depends on the commitment and cooperation of many different constituencies that may be implementing the directions set out in this strategy. The Ministry of Environment encourages all British Columbians to participate in the recovery of Sand-verbena Moth.
