Recovery Strategies

Recovery Strategy for the Nugget Moss (Microbryum vlassovii) in Canada

The Nugget Moss was listed on Schedule 1 of the Species at Risk Act (SARA) as Endangered in March 2009.

In the spirit of cooperation of the Accord for the Protection of Species at Risk, the Government of British Columbia has given permission to the Government of Canada to adopt the “Recovery strategy for the nugget moss (Microbryum vlassovii) in British Columbia” under Section 44 of the Species at Risk Act. As the competent minister under SARA, the federal Minister of the Environment has included an addition (Part 1) which completes the SARA requirements for this recovery strategy, and excludes the section on Socio-Economic Considerations. Socio-economic factors are not part of the consideration process for federal recovery strategies developed under SARA. These factors are kept isolated from this strategic phase of recovery planning.

The British Columbia Ministry of Environment led the development of the attached recovery strategy for the species (Part 2) in cooperation with Environment Canada.

Consultation period: 2012-04-25 to 2012-06-24
