Recovery Strategy for the Northern Dusky Salamander (Desmognathus fuscus), Carolinian population, in Canada

The Minister of Environment and Climate Change is the competent minister under SARA for the Northern Dusky Salamander, Carolinian population, and has prepared the federal component of this recovery strategy (Part 1), as per section 37 of SARA. To the extent possible, it has been prepared in cooperation with the Province of Ontario as per section 39(1) of SARA. 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 Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources (now the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry) led the development of the attached multi species recovery strategy for the Allegheny Mountain Dusky Salamander and the Northern Dusky Salamander (Part 2) in cooperation with Environment and Climate Change Canada. The Province of Ontario also led the development of the attached Government Response Statement (Part 3), which is the Ontario Government’s policy response to its provincial recovery strategy and summarizes the prioritized actions that the Ontario government intends to take and support.


In light of the current Covid-19 pandemic, the 60-day public comment period on the proposed Recovery Strategy for the Northern Dusky Salamander (Desmognathus fuscus), Carolinian population, in Canada has been extended to 90 days to provide sufficient time for feedback.
