Consultation Workbook Survey

Northern Bottlenose Whale (Scotian Shelf Population)

The government's decision on whether or not to list a species under the Species at Risk Act (SARA) will be based on a full description and understanding of the costs and benefits of the impacts of protection and recovery on individuals, organizations, First Nations, industries, and Canadian society in general.

This survey form can be used to provide your opinions about listing the Scotian Shelf population of northern bottlenose whale under SARA. It also begins with some general questions about conservation priorities and your awareness of other aquatic species at risk.

Comments are welcome from individuals of all backgrounds, whether you are engaged in activities that may be affected by northern bottlenose whale conservation efforts or are a citizen with an interest in northern bottlenose whales.

You should read the consultation workbook before completing these questions.
