Under the Accord for the Protection of Species at Risk (1996), the federal, provincial, and territorial governments agreed to work together on legislation, programs, and policies to protect wildlife species at risk throughout Canada.

In the spirit of cooperation of the Accord, the Government of Alberta has given permission to the Government of Canada to adopt the Alberta Soapweed and Yucca Moth Recovery Plan 2012-2022 (Part 2) under Section 44 of the Species at Risk Act (SARA). Environment and Climate Change Canada has included a federal addition (Part 1) which completes the SARA requirements for this recovery strategy.

The federal recovery strategy for the Soapweed, Yucca Moth, the Non-pollinating Yucca Moth and the Five-spotted Bogus Yucca Moth in Canada consists of two parts:

Part 1 - Federal Addition to the Alberta Soapweed and Yucca Moth Recovery Plan 2012-2022, prepared by Environment and Climate Change Canada.

Part 2 - Alberta Soapweed and Yucca Moth Recovery Plan 2012-2022, prepared by the Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development.
