Management Plans

Management plan for the Savannah Sparrow, princeps subspecies (Passerculus sandwichensis princeps), in Canada

The Savannah Sparrow, princeps subspecies (“Ipswich Sparrow”), is a migratory bird covered under the Migratory Birds Convention Act, 1994 and is under the management jurisdiction of the federal government. The Species at Risk Act (SARA, Section 65) requires the competent minister to prepare management plans for listed species of special concern. The Ipswich Sparrow was listed as a species of special concern under SARA in June 2003. The Canadian Wildlife Service – Atlantic Region, Environment Canada, led the development of this management plan. Nova Scotia, the only responsible jurisdiction, reviewed and approved the plan. The plan meets SARA requirements in terms of content and process (Sections 65–66).

Consultation period: 2006-07-27 to 2006-09-25
