Wild Species 2005
Welcome to Wild Species 2005: The General Status of Species in Canada.
The intent of the Wild Species series is to answer the following fundamental questions about wild species in Canada: which species occur in Canada, in which provinces, territories or ocean regions do they occur, and what is their status? To accomplish this goal, Wild Species 2005: The General Status of Species in Canada presents the results of general status assessments for a broad cross-section of Canadian species. General status assessments are made by integrating the best available information on population size, distribution, threats and trends to generate an expert evaluation of the status of each species.

The General Status Search Tool allows you to view and download the general status ranks on which this report is based.
The general status ranks for the Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut are draft ranks until they have been reviewed by the Yukon Fish and Wildlife Management Board, the Wildlife Management Advisory Council (North Slope), the Wildlife Management Advisory Council (NWT), the Sahtu Renewable Resources Board, the Gwich'in Renewable Resource Board and the Nunavut Wildlife Management Board (NWMB).
