Species at Risk
Here are a few ways you can help species at risk in Ontario:
Learn more about SAR in eastern Georgian Bay.
Report your sightings of at-risk species to improve knowledge of species range.
Download Ontario Nature’s Reptile & Amphibian Atlas App that identifies Ontario’s reptiles and amphibians, lets you submit sightings to the Reptile and Amphibian Atlas, and also stores a record of your sightings.
Create habitat for wildlife on your property – plant a butterfly or wildflower garden with native plants and trees, maintain brush piles, let some grass grow uncut, or participate in a local habitat restoration project. Check out the Life on the Bay Stewardship Guide for more information on natural landscaping.
Watch out for wildlife on roads and waterways. If safe to do so, please move a turtle off the road and try to place them in the direction they were traveling.
Keep your cat indoors. Feral and domestic cats roaming outside kill more birds than any other human activity!
