Welcome to the Species at Risk Public Registry

The Public Registry is your source for news, information, and documents related to species at risk in Canada. This web site has been designed to help you better understand Canada's approach to protecting and recovering species at risk, learn about species at risk and what's being done to help them, and get involved in decision making and recovery activities.

The Public Registry fulfills the requirement under the Species at Risk Act (SARA) for the Minister of the Environment and Climate Change to establish a public registry for the purpose of facilitating access to SARA-related documents.
