Protecting species at risk is a complex issue. The protection of species at risk lies mainly with the government. However, the protection of species at risk and their habitat relies on a partnership between licensees, other stakeholders, residents and governments to be completely successful. Protecting species at risk through educating the public about particular species and their sensitivities has the potential to go a long way in assisting in the management and survival of these species. The goal of this strategic plan is to develop and implement land use designations, policies and management guidelines that effectively protect species at risk through use of the best available science, combined with coordinated planning efforts, public involvement and stakeholder participation. We need to encourage an environment where we can work together in a landscape approach to protect habitat, contribute to the recovery of species at risk and conserve British Columbia's natural legacy. The annotated matrix (THE STRATEGIC PLAN) presented in Table 1 addresses key issues and objectives by identifying strategic (knowledge gaps) outcomes, priorities and the underlying rationale. To be a successful tool, this table needs to be updated annually; facilitating adaptive management and providing a method to track research trials, indicating present and future opportunities, and prioritizing projects.
