SPECIES AT RISK COMPONENT ADDED TO ALBERTA ENVIRONMENTAL FARM PLAN
Attaining these designations will expand markets for Alberta producers
Alberta species at risk will be better protected under a project led by the Alberta Environmental Farm Plan (EFP) with over $200,000 in funding from Environment and Climate Change Canada. The three year initiative will focus on the development of a new online tool that will help producers know about opportunities to conserve species at risk on their farms, provide them with information and resources, and enable them to assess whether they meet sustainable sourcing standards. The project will use several data sources, including GIS, to simplify and speed up the process of completing an EFP.
