The FRCN Conservation Areas Initiative is a project with the aim of safeguarding the natural landscape of Interlake, in southeastern Manitoba. This effort is led by the FRCN, with the support of Peguis First Nation, CPAWS (Manitoba), the province of Manitoba, and the Government of Canada. The primary objectives of this and other Canadian wildlife campaigns are to maintain wildlife for its inspirational value, its role in nature's equilibrium, and its economic and cultural significance. The Wildlife Area Regulations were modernized to better protect the priority habitats necessary for the conservation of migratory birds, endangered species, and other wild animals in Canada.
The Canadian Wildlife Federation works with regional partners, community groups, lake associations and individuals to reduce risks to turtles. The Endangered Wildlife Recovery (RENEW) initiative was launched to inform the public about progress made in protecting endangered species. The Committee on the Status of Canada's Endangered Wildlife was created to provide independent advice to the Minister of the Environment on the status of endangered species. Canada's Wildlife Act was passed to allow for the creation, management and protection of national wildlife areas. The Wildlife Service Canada became its own branch within the Department of the Environment in recognition of the department's increasing responsibilities to protect nature.
The Endangered Species Act was passed to help prevent the disappearance of wildlife species in Canada, ensure their recovery, and manage species of special interest. WWF has partnered with e-commerce and social media companies to adopt a standard wildlife policy framework for online commerce. 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 constituted the first parliamentary authority for the creation of marine protected areas in Canada. All these initiatives are part of a larger effort to conserve wildlife in Canada through fundamental research, land acquisition processes, wetland preservation programs, and more.
