From: Mark Wayland, Head Species at Risk Unit, Canadian Wildlife Service

Environment Canada is developing a Management Plan for the Short-eared Owl, a species listed as Special Concern under the federal Species at Risk Act. The Short-eared Owl’s breeding range occurs across the prairies. Please see the enclosed Summary of the Proposed Management Plan to learn more about this species.

The proposed Management Plan for the Short-eared Owl is now available on-line on the Species at Risk Public Registry for a 60-day public comment period beginning February 23, 2016 and ending April 23, 2016. After this period, we will update and finalize the document based on a review of all information received. We will also notify you when the final document is posted to the registry.
