Recovery Strategies

Recovery Strategy for the King Rail (Rallus elegans) in Canada

The Species at Risk Act (SARA, Section 37) requires the competent minister to prepare recovery strategies for listed extirpated, endangered or threatened species. The King Rail was listed as endangered under SARA in August 2006. Environment Canada led the development of this Recovery Strategy in partnership with the Parks Canada Agency. This recovery strategy was prepared in cooperation with the Province of Ontario, Walpole Island First Nation, Essex Region Conservation Authority, Bird Studies Canada, and Ducks Unlimited Canada as per section 39(1) of SARA.

Consultation period: 2010-12-16 to 2011-02-14
