Your responsibilities under the Species at Risk Act
This section of the Species at Risk Registry has been prepared for information purposes and convenience of reference only, and has no official sanction. It is not a substitute for the Species at Risk Act (SARA) or any regulation under this Act. In the event of an inconsistency between the information included here and the Act or its regulations, the latter would prevail. Official or more detailed information can be found in the legal text of SARA.
All Canadians have a shared responsibility to protect species at risk and ensure healthy ecosystems for future generations.
The way in which the Species at Risk Act (SARA) will affect you will vary depending on the activities in which you or your organization are involved and the species at risk that may be affected by these activities.
