Facilitating the protection and restoration of endangered species and ecological communities on BC’s South Coast

National and International Guidelines

Guidelines & Best Practices

A number of guidelines around best practices for conservation and recovery have been developed for species at risk, rare plants and ecological communities on the South Coast and BC. A selection is provided here that provide relevant applications to South Coast species and ecological communities (some are not found through senior agency sites).

For the most up to date information regarding guidelines and regulatory requirements for various species and ecological communities at risk in BC, please contact the relevant staff with the Province of BC, Species at Risk Program of the Ecosystems Management Branch, Environment Canada, Pacific Region or the Department of Fisheries & Oceans Canada, Pacific Region.

Chytrid fungi are widespread in the environment where they act as decomposers of keratin, chitin, cellulose, and other plant material. Chytrids are also known parasites of fungi, algae, higher plants, protozoa, and invertebrates, but none were known to infect vertebrates until recently. Since amphibian chytrid (Batrachochytrium...

Collections of specimens form the basis of a permanent record of the fauna at a particular place and time. The specimens and their associated data can then be checked later for authentication or verification. They also may be useful to any future taxonomic studies. Therefore, collection of Odonata specimens is a very important aspect of the survey...

Translocations are important tools in the field of conservation. Despite increased use over the last few decades, the appropriateness of translocations for amphibians and reptiles has been debated widely over the past 20 years. To provide a comprehensive evaluation of the suitability of amphibians and reptiles for translocation, we reviewed the...
