Species at Risk Initiative
Why is it important to know about this?
- Contributes to sustainable sourcing
- Benefits for producers
- Benefits to the environment and society
The Alberta Environmental Farm Plan (EFP) is completing a three year Species at Risk (SAR) initiative with funding provided by the Government of Canada’s Species at Risk on Agricultural Land (SARPAL) program.
About 75% of species at risk in Alberta are found in the Grassland and Parkland regions. The goal is for Alberta producers to know which species at risk they may have on their land and how to make simple changes that will conserve them and their habitats.
The SAR component will roll into the EFP – a self-assessment tool that is available online or in print. Click here to find out more about completing an EFP >
