Recovery Strategy for the Western Prairie Fringed-orchid (Platanthera praeclara) in Canada [Proposed]

Appendix B



Six plant, two invertebrate, and one bird species considered to be at risk have been observed in an area centred around the Rural Municipalities of Stuartburn and Franklin in southeastern Manitoba. Although several of the species have wider provincial and national distributions, a multiple-species approach for recovery action may be warranted to address common threats and management needs in this particular area.

Additional information on the range and status of each of these species can be found at the Government of Canada’s SARA Registry (http://www.sararegistry.gc.ca) and/or the Government of Manitoba’s Species at Risk web site (http://www.gov.mb.ca/conservation/wildlife/managing/species_at_risk.html).
