Recovery Strategies

Recovery Strategy for the Dakota Skipper (Hesperia dacotae) in Canada

The Dakota skipper (Hesperia dacotae) was designated Threatened by the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC) in 2003 (COSEWIC 2003) and was officially listed under the Species at Risk Act (SARA) in July 2005. SARA (Section 37) requires the competent Minister to prepare a recovery strategy for all listed extirpated, endangered or threatened species. The Canadian Wildlife Service – Prairie and Northern Region, Environment Canada, led the development of this recovery strategy. It was developed in cooperation or consultation with the Governments of Manitoba and Saskatchewan. All responsible jurisdictions reviewed and approved the strategy. The strategy meets SARA requirements in terms of content and process (Sections 39–41).

Consultation period: 2007-07-23 to 2007-09-21
