Manitoba’s NDP Government to List Five Animal and Plant Species as Endangered

Good for Manitoba, but pity that it is left to provinces to save these animals and plants.

In an effort to protect Manitoba’s few remaining patches of tall grass prairie and the rare limestone plains known as alvars, NDP government of Manitoba has designated them as threatened or endangered.

It has been told that the olive-sided flycatcher, the little brown bat, the northern long-eared bat, the Gastony’s cliffbrake and the Canada warbler will be declared threatened or endangered under regulatory amendments to the Endangered Species and Ecosystems Act.
