Regional or Local Number: SARA-PYR-2009-0126

Notice is hereby given that pursuant to the provisions of section 73 of the Species at Risk Act permit no. SARA-PYR-2009-0126 is issued.

Purpose:
Other type of activity necessary or beneficial to the species

Description:
The goal of this project is to protect selected populations of rare species from habitat degradation due to invasive species or conifer encroachment. The species include: Bartramia stricta, Rigid Apple Moss Dryopteris arguta, Coastal Wood Fern Enthostodon fascicularis,Banded Cord-moss Epilobium densiflorum, Dense Spike-primrose Limnanthes macounii ,Macoun's Meadowfoam Lotus formosissimus, Seaside Birds-foot Lotus Lupinus densiflorus, Dense-flowered Lupine Meconella oregano, White Meconella Microseris bigelovii, Coast Microseris Minuartia pusilla, Dwarf Sandwort Ranunculus alismifolius, Water-plantain Buttercup Sanicula arctopoides, Bear's-foot Sanicle Sanicula bipinnatifida, Purple Sanicle Tortula laevipila, Twisted Oak Moss The permit proposal is for multi-year species at risk (SAR) stewardship activities at several Department of National Defence (DND) properties on Southern Vancouver Island. The SAR at each site occur in open meadows that are being encroached by invasive species such as: Scotch broom, English ivy, gorse, English holly, Daphne spurge, English hawthorn, herbaceous annual and biennial weeds, annual and perennial grasses and/or conifers. The goal is to remove the invading species from the area within and adjacent to the selected SAR populations.

Start Date: 2010-02-04   End Date: 2012-11-12

Issuing Authority: Environment Canada

Authority Used:

  • Species at Risk Act

Location of Activity (province, territory or ocean):

  • British Columbia

Affected Species:

Pre-Conditions:
Consistent with Section 73 (3) (a-c), the proponent also successfully demonstrated that all reasonable alternatives to the activity have been considered, all feasible measures will be taken to minimize the effect of the activity on the species, and the activity will not jeopardize its survival or recovery. Only qualified personnel, experienced in the identification of the target SAR and familiar with the specific locations, will conduct these activities. For each SAR site, a specific stewardship plan will be developed. The plans will identify what invasive species are threats to the specific SAR at that site, and the recommended approach for managing the threat. The plans will identify specific times of year that are most suitable for stewardship actions based on the SAR biology. The plans will be developed by personnel with experience in SAR stewardship, and will be reviewed by a qualified biologist prior to implementation, in consultation with relevant Recovery Teams as required. All treated areas will be monitored annually and follow-up treatments will be conducted as necessary. All native seeds used will be sourced locally, whenever possible from the same property at which they will be used.
