General Status of Wildlife Reports

Wild Species 2015: The General Status of Species in Canada

Wild Species 2015 is the fourth report of the series after 2000, 2005, and 2010. The aim of the Wild Species series is to provide an overview on which species occur in Canada, in which provinces, territories or ocean regions they occur, and what their status is. Each species assessed in this report received a rank among the following categories: Presumed Extirpated (X), Possibly Extirpated (H), Critically Imperiled (1), Imperiled (2), Vulnerable (3), Apparently Secure (4), Secure (5), Unrankable (U), Unranked (NR) or Not Applicable (NA). In the Wild Species 2015 report, the conservation status of 29 848 species has been assessed in Canada among 34 different taxonomic groups: selected macrofungi, macrolichens, bryophytes, vascular plants, sponges, corals, freshwater bivalves, terrestrial and freshwater snails and slugs, spiders, mayflies, dragonflies and damselflies, stoneflies, grasshoppers and relatives, lacewings, beetles, ants, bees, yellowjacket wasps, caddisflies, moths and butterflies, scorpionflies, black flies, mosquitoes, horse flies, bee flies, flower flies, decapods, sea cucumbers, sea urchins, fishes, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals.
