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

Declaration

 

This recovery strategy has been prepared in cooperation with the jurisdictions responsible for the western prairie fringed-orchid. Environment Canada has reviewed and accepts this document as its recovery strategy for the western prairie fringed-orchid, as required under the Species at Risk Act. This recovery strategy also constitutes advice to other jurisdictions and organizations that may be involved in recovering the species.

The goals, objectives and recovery approaches identified in the strategy are based on the best existing knowledge and are subject to modifications resulting from new findings and revised objectives.

This recovery strategy will be the basis for one or more action plans that will provide details on specific recovery measures to be taken to support conservation and recovery of the species. The Minister of the Environment will report on progress within five years.

Success in the recovery of this species depends on the commitment and cooperation of many different constituencies that will be involved in implementing the directions set out in this strategy and will not be achieved by Environment Canada or any other jurisdiction alone. In the spirit of the Accord for the Protection of Species at Risk, the Minister of the Environment invites all responsible jurisdictions and Canadians to join Environment Canada in supporting and implementing this strategy for the benefit of the western prairie fringed-orchid and Canadian society as a whole.
