Critical Habitat for Species at Risk, British Columbia - White Meconella (Meconella oregana)

Critical Habitat for Species at Risk, British Columbia - White Meconella (Meconella oregana) This dataset displays the geographic areas within which critical habitat for species at risk listed on Schedule 1 of the federal Species at Risk Act (SARA) occurs in British Columbia. However, not all of the area within these boundaries is necessarily critical habitat. To precisely define what constitutes critical habitat for a particular species it is essential that this geo-spatial information be considered in conjunction with complementary information provided in a species’ recovery document. Recovery documents are available from the Species at Risk (SAR) Public Registry (http://www.sararegistry.gc.ca). The recovery documents contain important information about the interpretation of the geo-spatial information, especially regarding the biological and environmental features (“biophysical attributes”) that complete the definition of a species’ critical habitat.

Critical habitat is defined in the federal Species at Risk Act (SARA) as “the habitat that is necessary for the survival or recovery of a listed wildlife species and that is identified as the species’ critical habitat in the recovery strategy or action plan for the species”. Critical habitat identification alone is not an automatic “protection” designation. Federal or non-federal laws or bylaws may be in place to provide protection. 2019-03-19 Environment and Climate Change Canada ec.sigrep-gissarr.ec@canada.ca Nature and EnvironmentScience and TechnologyCriticalHabitatSpecies at RiskBritish ColumbiaNature and Biodiversity - HabitatSpeciesProtect Species Well-BeingDevelop Species Recovery / Management / Conservation PlansBritish Columbia (BC)Habitats CH_857_Meconella_oreganaESRI REST https://maps-cartes.ec.gc.ca/arcgis/rest/services/BC_CriticalHabitat_CB_HabitatEssentiel/MapServer/39 CH_857_Meconella_oreganaESRI REST https://maps-cartes.ec.gc.ca/arcgis/rest/services/BC_CriticalHabitat_CB_HabitatEssentiel/MapServer/39 WMSWMS https://maps-cartes.ec.gc.ca/arcgis/services/BC_CriticalHabitat_CB_HabitatEssentiel/MapServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&layers=32&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/html WMSWMS https://maps-cartes.ec.gc.ca/arcgis/services/BC_CriticalHabitat_CB_HabitatEssentiel/MapServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&layers=32&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/html
