Species at Risk Act




The Species at Risk Act (SARA) received Royal Assent on December 12, 2002, bringing to close a nine-year legislative process to protect Canada's species at risk and their critical habitat. The Government of Canada announced proclamation into law June 5, 2003.

The overall goal of the Species at Risk Act is to prevent wildlife species from becoming extinct or lost from the wild, and to help in the recovery of those that are at risk as a result of human activities. SARA provides flexibility so that many different species can be protected, including birds, fish, animals, amphibians, reptiles and plants.

The Act builds on existing laws and programs, such as the Fisheries Act, the Migratory Birds Convention Act, the Canada National Parks Act, the North American Waterfowl Management Plan, as well as provincial and territorial legislation and programs.
