    Endangered Species Act

    Blanding's TurtleOntario's Endangered Species Act (ESA) came into effect in June 2008, replacing an outdated 1971 version. It takes a scientific approach to listing species at risk and protecting their habitat. There is some flexibility in the ESA, such as permits and agreements that help address some of the economic concerns. The goal is to work towards the recovery of each species at risk until it is de-listed.

    Naturally, some rural landowners will have concerns that they won't be able to work their land because of restrictions imposed by the ESA.  This is not the intention of the ESA, since farming and forestry are mainstays of the rural Ontario economy. The Species at Risk Farm Incentive Program actually offers financial incentives to farmers who protect and restore habitats for species at risk on their properties. The Conservation Land Tax Incentive Program offers up to 100% property tax reduction on parts of your property that are deserving habitat protection.

    Wildlife and its habitat are being lost at a faster pace than at any other time in history. There are currently over 180 species at risk in Ontario. Take some time to read the list of species at risk and learn which ones you might find in your area. If you find any on your property, read this overview of the Endangered Species Act to find out if some habitat on your property needs to be protected.

    For specific details, read the entire Endangered Species Act 2007.
