Recovery Strategies

Recovery Strategy and Action Plan for the Fawnsfoot (Truncilla donaciformis) and Threehorn Wartyback (Obliquaria reflexa) in Canada

The Fawnsfoot and Threehorn Wartyback were listed as Endangered and Threatened, respectively, under the Species at Risk Act (SARA) in August 2019. This multispecies recovery strategy and action plan is considered one in a series of documents for these species that are linked and should be taken into consideration together, including: the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC) status reports for Fawnsfoot (2008) and Threehorn Wartyback (2013); and, the recovery potential assessments for the Fawnsfoot (2011) and Threehorn Wartyback (2014). Recovery for these species has been determined to be biologically and technically feasible.

Due to technical glitch that led to temporary loss of access, the public comment period has been extended for two weeks.

Consultation period: 2020-09-24 to 2020-12-17
