An Integrated Assessment of Porcupine Caribou Seasonal Distribution, Movements, and Habitat Preferences for Regional Land Use Planning in Northern Yukon Territory, Canada
Section 11 (Conservation Agreements) are the third provision in SARA that provides for legal protection of terrestrial critical habitat on non-federal lands. This provision represents a collaborative approach in that it does not require the federal government to legislate over provincial jurisdiction. Section 11 allows the federal government to enter a “conservation agreement” with any government, organization, or private landowner to benefit a listed species, including by protecting its critical habitat. Linked to this project are the S11 Conservation Agreements for Boreal Caribou conservation and recovery in Canada.
