British Columbia is world-renowned for its spectacular natural diversity.
British Columbians value this natural diversity, and the social, economic and
cultural benefits that it provides. As B.C. strives to maintain both a healthy
environment and a thriving economy, some species are in need of special attention.
This plan is government’s vision and commitment to ensuring that the needs
of species at risk are considered as B.C. pursues its economic and social priorities.
It sets out those actions that government plans to undertake over the next five
years to improve our approach to management of species at risk in the province.
What government does is only part of the solution. Together all British
Columbians need to challenge ourselves to think about what we can do to
protect and recover species at risk.
