black ash, endangered

Endangered Black Ash Needs Immediate Protection

A year ago, in October 2020, the Committee on the Status of Species at Risk in Ontario (COSSARO) determined that black ash was endangered in Ontario. Yet the species and its habitat are not yet protected under Ontario’s Endangered Species Act (ESA). We invite you to join Ontario Nature in urging the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks, to fully protect black ash and its habitat without delay. Please also take a moment to circulate this petition to those in your network who you think may be interested.
