CBC news posted an article on Sept 13, 2017 about the decline of Canada's Wildlife. A report by the World Wildlife Fund showed that over half of Canada's vertebrate species populations are in decline. The declines are due to habitat loss, climate change, invasive species, pollution, over-harvesting, etc. Many species have been listed under Canada's Species at Risk Act however, these species populations are still declining despite the federal legislation protecting them. The federal and provincial governments need to come together and determine the best way to manage the endangered species before it is too late.
