Summary
Abstract: The intent of the Wild Species series is to answer the following fundamental
questions about wild species in Canada: which species occur in Canada, in which
provinces, territories or ocean regions do they occur, and what is their
status? To accomplish this goal, Wild Species 2005: The General Status of
Species in Canada presents the results of general status assessments for a
broad cross-section of Canadian species. General status assessments are made by
integrating the best available information on population size, distribution,
threats and trends to generate an expert evaluation of the status of each
species.

You can navigate this website by using the links on the left-hand
side of this page, or by using the Table of Contents. You can also download a
copy of the text of Wild Species 2005 as a pdf document by clicking here. The
General Status Search Tool allows you to view and download the general status
ranks on which this report is based.
