CONCEPTUALIZE - VISION

  • DRAFT CANADA MGMT PLAN: The objective of this management plan is to stabilize the quantity, quality and distribution of Yellow Rail breeding, moulting and migratory stopover habitat across Canada and to promote the conservation and management of suitable habitat on the wintering grounds. Achieving this objective should ensure the conservation of the Yellow Rail in Canada.

  • (PROPOSED) AMERICAS: The distribution, diversity, and abundance of populations and habitats of breeding, moulting, migratory, and nonbreeding Yellow Rail are sustained or restored in appropriate current, transitional and future habitats of the Americas.

COMPLETE SITUATIONAL ANALYSIS - STRATEGIES

  • Identify key Yellow Rail breeding, moulting and migratory stopover sites and regularly assess habitat availability and condition at these sites in Canada. Key sites are those that are threatened, are used regularly over a period of years by Yellow Rails or used by a relatively large numbers of rails.

    2. Conserve habitat at key breeding, moulting and migratory stopover sites in Canada.

    3. Develop management practices for Yellow Rail habitat and promote their incorporation into existing and future wetland conservation and management initiatives.

    4. Fill important knowledge gaps, particularly those related to main threats and effective management and conservation practices.

    5. Develop and implement communication tools to increase public and private sector awareness and involvement in Yellow Rail conservation.
