Habitat Secured for Waterfowl Data
- Cumulative waterfowl habitat secured in Canada by NAWMP partners, 1990 to 2012
- Cumulative habitat secured by habitat joint venture in Canada, 2012
(thousands of square kilometres)
Note: For each year, the cumulative habitat secured is calculated by adding newly secured area to the existing securement base and subtracting the area of expired agreements.
|Habitat joint venture||Area of habitat secured|
|Pacific Coast (Canada portion)||514|
|Prairie Habitat (including Western Boreal Forest region)||72 646|
|Western Boreal Forest region (included in the total above)||45 482|
Note: See habitat joint ventures websites and implementations plans, along with the annual Habitat Matters publication for further details on each region. A review of the NAWMP tracking system has led to adjustments of annual securement totals for each joint venture. Adjustments have been made as the NAWMP tracking system improves; habitat secured for each region may differ from other published reports.
