Your Data Informs Species Ranking
March 5, 2015: Did you know the SKCDC uses submitted data to help inform species ranking? The data housed in the SKCDC’s database, much of which had been submitted as per permit requirements through the Fish, Wildlife and Lands Branch, is used to reassess the subnational ranks of priority species. Data on these species is input into NatureServe’s rank calculator (which is part of a standardized process that the SKCDC uses to rank all species) to assist in the reassessment, and ranks are reviewed by experts (e.g., the Botanical Assessment Working Group). Notable changes in the past two years include:

These changes are a direct result of observations submitted to the SKCDC. For more information on ranking, visit our Species Conservation Rankings webpage.
