How To Identify Species At Risk Habitat
Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve will introduce an on-line resource to help you determine which at-risk species and their associated habitat may be found on your building site. This will help you better understand the steps you can take to conserve these species and comply with the Endangered Species Act.
