Nature Conservancy of Canada report shows 36 species at risk in Saskatchewan

The Nature Conservancy of Canada has released a new report showing there are 36 species at risk in Saskatchewan.

The manager of science and conservation planning at the Nature Conservancy, Mathew Braun, says farmers can play an important role in ensuring species at risk do not become extinct.

He says preservation of wetlands and other native habitat is important for a wide range of insects, animals and birds.

Some of the species at risk in Saskatchewan include the burrowing owl, sage grouse, swift fox and whooping crane.
