A Species at Risk Conservation Plan (SARC) is a visual assessment of the key wildlife habitats found on a property. It provides landholders with information on how subtle management changes to their operation may benefit Species at Risk and other wildlife.
The process includes the following steps:
A one-on-one meeting with the landholder to discuss current management practices, wildlife, species at risk and the objectives of the plan.
A quick ranch-wide visual habitat assessment carried out by MULTISAR biologists and recommendations for Beneficial Management Practices (BMPs) adapted for the land and the ranching operation. These are summarized in a report, along with a variety of supporting information and maps.
Implementation of BMPs is at the discretion of the landholder.
If you manage native prairie in Alberta’s Grassland Natural Region, you are eligible for a free assessment. Contact MULTISARif you would like to consider implementing a Species at Risk Conservation Plan on your land.
