Recovery Strategies

Recovery Strategy for the American Badger jeffersonii subspecies (Taxidea taxus jeffersonii) Western population and Eastern population in Canada

The Minister of Environment and Climate Change and Minister responsible for the Parks Canada Agency is the competent minister under SARA for the American Badger jeffersonii subspecies Western population and Eastern 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 British Columbia. 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 British Columbia Ministry of Environment led the development of the attached recovery plan for the American Badger (Taxidea taxus) in British Columbia (Part 2) in cooperation with Environment and Climate Change Canada and the Parks Canada Agency.


In light of the current Covid-19 pandemic, the 60-day public comment period on the proposed Recovery Strategy for the American Badger jeffersonii subspecies (Taxidea taxus jeffersonii) Western population and Eastern population in Canada has been extended to 90 days to provide sufficient time for feedback.
