     Eastern Massasauga Recovery Plan Mandate

The National Recovery Plan for the Eastern Massasauga Rattlesnake was developed to:

(1) achieve viable populations of Massasaugas in tallgrass and peatland ecosystems and (2) retain the current distribution, structure, and connectivity among local (sub-)populations throughout the Bruce Peninsula and Georgian Bay population regions. 

The plan recommends meeting these goals through the formation of population and information-based working groups. These groups are charged with the design, testing, implementation and evaluation of recovery actions across five recovery strategies. These five strategies are:

1. Public Education and Outreach
2. Scientific Research
3. Monitoring and Management
4. Shelter Areas Network
5. Communications and Coordination
6. Ojibway Ecosystem Restoration
7. Wainfleet Ecosystem Restoration

The Recovery Team encourages all working groups to include as members, citizens of local communities and invites direct participation by U.S. colleagues in Canadian recovery team activities.

To learn more about the objectives and activities of each work group, please visit the "Working Groups" sections within this Sistrurus Information Network (SIN). You can help in the recovery of the Eastern Massasauga Rattlesnake by becoming actively involved in one or more of these working groups. To participate please contact the Chair of the Eastern Massasauga

Recovery Team through the Contact Us section located in the top menu bar.
