9 Plan implementation
The management plan will be implemented over a 10-year period. Details of management plan implementation will be developed through Environment and Climate Change Canada’s annual work planning process, and will be implemented as human and financial resources allow.
The major action component of this plan consists of surveying, monitoring and review. Site inspections to both islands, combined with bird census data, will provide information to identify additional necessary management actions (e.g. signage, outreach), and to identify potential threats to wildlife and birds as well as the overall health of the colonial nesting bird colonies.
|Great Lakes decadal survey of breeding colonial waterbirdsa||-||Yes||Yes||-||-||-||-||-||-||-|
|Lower Great Lakes decadal survey of staging waterfowla||-||-||-||Yes||-||-||-||-||-||-|
a Because decadal surveys are generally carried out over a three-year time period, it is difficult to indicate the year in which these sites would be surveyed. Different segments of shoreline are done each year. Scotch Bonnet Island would likely be done in a different year than Mohawk Island due to the different geographic locations.
9.1 Management authorities and mandates
Environment and Climate Change Canada, Canadian Wildlife Service, Ontario, is responsible for site management of Scotch Bonnet Island National Wildlife Area (NWA) and Mohawk Island NWA.
9.2 Management plan review
This management plan will be reviewed and updated 5 years after formal approval by Environment and Climate Change Canada, and every 10 years thereafter. Significant new information may be appended to the document as required, to aid in site management and decision making.
