The Canadian Wildlife Act was passed with the intention of creating, managing, and protecting national wildlife areas. This act was supported by the Council of Wildlife Ministers, who launched the Endangered Wildlife Recovery (RENEW) initiative to inform the public about the progress made in protecting endangered species. The Endangered Species Act was also passed to prevent wildlife species from disappearing, ensure the recovery of species that are threatened or endangered due to human activity, and manage species of special interest to prevent them from becoming endangered or threatened. The Regulations currently designate 55 national wildlife areas across Canada, providing approximately 1 million hectares of habitat for wildlife species.
In addition, the Canadian government banned the killing of white-capped seals, leading to the virtual disappearance of the seal industry.

The Canadian Wildlife Act was amended to include all terrestrial species of flora and fauna and all species found within 200 nautical miles of the Canadian coast. This amendment constituted the first parliamentary authority for the creation of marine protected areas in Canada.

The Canadian Wildlife Federation works with regional partners, community groups, lake associations, and individuals to reduce risks to turtles.
They also allow for the establishment and management of national wildlife areas to protect the habitat of migratory birds, endangered species, and other wild animals. Wildlife Service Canada became its own branch within the Department of the Environment in recognition of their growing responsibilities to protect nature. Created in the 1960s, these wildlife vignettes were a pioneering effort to use television as a medium to interest people in wildlife conservation. These campaigns have been successful in raising awareness about wildlife conservation and inspiring people to take action. In recent years, there have been several successful Canadian wildlife campaigns that have made a positive impact on conservation efforts. The RENEW initiative has been successful in informing people about progress made in protecting endangered species.
The ban on killing white-capped seals has led to a virtual disappearance of the seal industry. The Canadian Wildlife Federation has also been successful in reducing risks to turtles through their partnerships with regional partners, community groups, lake associations, and individuals. Finally, the creation of national wildlife areas has been successful in providing habitats for wildlife species. Overall, these campaigns have been effective in raising awareness about wildlife conservation and inspiring people to take action. By continuing to support these initiatives and encouraging others to do so as well, we can ensure that our wildlife is protected for generations to come.
