This RIG works on recovery of invertebrates at risk in Garry oak and associated ecosystems. Tasks include completing assessments and initial planning, then initiating action toward protecting and expanding populations of invertebrates at risk that are designated Endangered, Threatened, or of management concern.
The RIG has contributed to these Recovery Strategies:
· Recovery Strategy for Island Blue (Plebejus saepiolus insulanus) in Canada (2008) (external website)
· Recovery Strategy for Multi-Species at Risk in Maritime Meadows associated with Garry Oak Ecosystems in Canada (2006) (external website)
