Gov't marks achievements under the National Conservation Plan

Yeah, take this as you will...

The National Conservation Plan includes $252 million over five years to support existing and new funding initiatives, such as the National Wetland Conservation Fund, and the expanded Habitat Stewardship Program and Aboriginal Fund for Species at Risk. Several new projects are being launched this year that will conserve and restore natural areas across the country, including habitat for species at risk. Additionally, new funding will focus, for the first time, on projects addressing other priority species beyond the protection and recovery of species at risk to prevent them from becoming a conservation concern.
