Critical Habitat - Species at risk - Canada

Critical Habitat - Species at risk - Canada Species At Risk Act (SARA) describes Critical Habitat (CH) as the habitat that is necessary for the survival or recovery of a listed wildlife species (schedule 1), and that is identified as the species’ critical habitat in a recovery strategy or in an action plan for the species. CH spatial data exists for 116 of the 469 Environment Canada – Species At Risk (EC SAR) of interest, which includes draft, candidate, proposed and final CH spatial data that were provided by CWS regional offices. In order to protect sensitive CH information, or for some sharing data issues, CH sites were generalized using a 10km x 10km national grid. As mentioned before, each region provides NCR-CWS with their CH spatial data. After the generalization process, all results were merged to constitute the national view. 2019-01-21 Environment and Climate Change Canada souleymane.toure@ec.gc.ca Nature and EnvironmentScience and TechnologyCanadaCritical Habitat; SAR; National view; GridNature and Biodiversity - HabitatSpeciesProtect Species Well-BeingProtect and Restore SpeciesNational (CA)Habitats Critical-Habitat-for-Species-at-Risk-National-View-tbl.csvCSV http://data.ec.gc.ca/data/species/protectrestore/critical-habitat-species-at-risk-canada/Critical-Habitat-for-Species-at-Risk-National-View-tbl.csv Critical Habitat - Species at risk - CanadaESRI REST https://ec.gc.ca/arcgis/rest/services/SpeciesProtectRestore_Canada_CanadianWildlifeService/MapServer/2 Critical Habitat - Species at risk - CanadaESRI REST https://ec.gc.ca/arcgis/rest/services/SpeciesProtectRestore_Canada_CanadianWildlifeService/MapServer/2 Critical Habitat - Species at risk - CanadaWMS https://ec.gc.ca/arcgis/services/SpeciesProtectRestore_Canada_CanadianWildlifeService/MapServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&layers=CriticalHabitatNationalView&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/html Critical Habitat - Species at risk - CanadaWMS https://ec.gc.ca/arcgis/services/SpeciesProtectRestore_Canada_CanadianWildlifeService/MapServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&layers=CriticalHabitatNationalView&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/html View ECCC Data Mart (English)HTML http://data.ec.gc.ca/data/species/protectrestore/critical-habitat-species-at-risk-canada View ECCC Data Mart (French)HTML http://data.ec.gc.ca/data/species/protectrestore/critical-habitat-species-at-risk-canada?lang=fr
