Management Plan for the Western Skink (Plestiodon skiltonianus) in Canada

The Western Skink (Plestiodon skiltonianus; formerly Eumeces skiltonianus) was designated as Special Concern by the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC) in 2002. It was listed as Special Concern in Canada on Schedule 1 of the Species at Risk Act (SARA) in 2005. The reasons for listing included the species’ small area of occupancy, apparently small population size, population fluctuations, and habitat loss due to agriculture and urban development.

Consultation period: 2014-06-05 to 2014-08-04
