From Abalone to Whales: Aquatic Species in Canada Face Risk of Extinction

Bowhead Whale Recovering in Canada’s Arctic

OTTAWA, May 4 – So says COSEWIC (Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada), which met in St. Andrews, New Brunswick, from April 25 through May 1, 2009 to assess the risk of extinction for 27 Canadian wildlife species. The Bowhead Whale is rooted deeply within Inuit culture and is the only baleen whale to reside year round in the Canadian waters of the High Arctic. Commercial whaling beginning in the 1500s severely depleted bowhead populations long before the species was given protection in the 1930s. Both Aboriginal Traditional Knowledge and scientific research provide evidence that bowhead population sizes have been steadily increasing in recent decades. As a consequence, Bowhead in the eastern Arctic were downlisted from Threatened to Special Concern, which is also the status assigned to the species in the western Arctic. Although the increased abundance is encouraging, the species faces an uncertain future in a rapidly changing Arctic climate.

Enough is Enough: Crees and Conservation Group Call for Moratorium on Forestry Development in the Habitat of Vulnerable Woodland

Nemaska, April 30 2009 – The Grand Council of the Crees (Eeyou Istchee) and the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS – Québec) are jointly demanding an immediate halt in forestry development in the habitat of vulnerable woodland caribou, until their common concerns can be addressed by Québec. The call comes following last week’s release of the provincial woodland caribou recovery strategy, published three years behind schedule by the Ministère des Ressources naturelles et de la Faune (MRNF). The strategy proposes actions to recover caribou populations, with the objective of “maintaining current caribou distribution throughout Québec”. Ironically, MRNF is now preparing to approve a series of major roads and logging operations in some of the last virgin forests of the Cree territory – an area of important woodland caribou habitat that both Crees and environmental groups agree must be protected.

If built, the dual pipelines would extend from the Alberta tar sands to the British Columbia coast, requiring tankers to ship both crude oil to markets in Asia and the US, and condensate, a product used in tar sands production, to Alberta. Preliminary research indicates that this project will be responsible for 6.5 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions per year – the equivalent of 1.6 million more cars on the road annually.
