Data Sources and Methods for the Changes in Wildlife Species Disappearance Risks Indicator
Description and rationale of the changes in wildlife species disappearance risks indicator
The changes in wildlife species disappearance risks indicator measures conservation effectiveness and is developed in partnership with the COSEWIC Secretariat at Environment Canada. The indicator tracks changes in the level of risk for species assessed by COSEWIC as “at risk” in Canada.
Species are recognized and listed as at-risk of extinction or extirpation as a means to focus management action towards high priority issues. Successful management should reduce the risk of species extinction.
