Recovery Strategies

Recovery Strategy for the Oregon Forestsnail (Allogona townsendiana) in Canada

The Minister of Environment is the competent minister for the recovery of the Oregon Forestsnail and has prepared the federal component of this recovery strategy (Part 1), as per section 37 of SARA. It has been prepared in cooperation with British Columbia Ministry of Environment, the Department of National Defence, and the British Columbia Conservation Data Centre. SARA section 44 allows the Minister to adopt all or part of an existing plan for the species if it meets the requirements under SARA for content (sub-sections 41(1) or (2)). The attached provincial recovery plan (Part 2 of this document) for the species was provided as science advice to the jurisdictions responsible for managing the species in British Columbia. Environment Canada has prepared this federal addition to meet the requirements of SARA.

Consultation period: 2014-12-23 to 2015-02-21
