Species At Risk 2004
Recovery Training Workshop

Update: Please note that this workshop is now full. A limited waiting list is being established through the registration form.

9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Tuesday 2 March 2004
Victoria Conference Centre

A technical workshop for recovery team members (actual and potential)

Pre-registration is required as there are a maximum of 400 spaces. Cost is included with conference registration. (http://www.speciesatrisk2004.ca/html/registration.html)

Objective: To provide technical information for the guidance of recovery practitioners in Canada. Specifically, to provide:

  • an overview of the national species at risk program
  • draft guidance on identifying critical habitat and residence
  • guidance in using COSEWIC’s assessment criteria to set goals & objectives in the recovery strategy
  • guidance in recovery team operations, roles and responsibilities
  • guidance in working with other people (consultation, socio-economic considerations in recovery planning, the role of stewardshjp, education and public outreach).

Registrants should be aware that this one day course will not be sufficient training for their role in recovery. Additional training in the national recovery process, and the implications of SARA, will be needed.
