Scientific research for the conservation of the species

Diurnal surveys will be undertaken for the Ottoe Skipper by walking transects twice per week in suitable habitat using sweep netting. For the White Flower Moth, night time luminoc ultraviolet traps with ethyl acetate will be placed in active sand dune habitat at approximately 5 locations and emptied every three to four nights. The purpose of the surveys is to determine the continued presence of the species in Manitoba.

Issuing Authority: Environment Canada

Authority Used:

  • Species at Risk Act

Location of Activity (province, territory or ocean):

  • Manitoba

Affected Species:

Alternatives such as live trapping with drop sheets are much less effective and much more costly. Light traps only sample a small area and generally only attract males. Traps will be examined every three to four days. If moths are found, traps will be moved to a new location to reduce mortality.
