The Canadian Species Initiative (CSI) aims to ensure that species recovery planning in Canada adheres to the principles of the One Plan Approach. Our goal is to establish a coordinated and holistic approach to ensure the most effective management actions are used for species conservation in Canada.
How do we decide which endangered species would benefit from human care and intensive management? CSI began a unique planning process to assess zoo-based conservation options for all 39 snake taxa in Canada. This process lays the groundwork for future conservation programs.
