Species at Risk in the Spotlight

Canada Warbler

This brightly-colored warbler, the Canada warbler, is sometimes called the necklaced warbler because of the band of black streaks across the male’s breast.  They are found in cool, damp, mixed deciduous-coniferous forests with well-developed shrub layers. They are short-term visitors to Canada each year—typically staying 3 months before migrating back to South America.

Common Snapping Turtle

Ontario’s largest turtle, the common snapping turtle is at risk mainly due to road mortality. Roadless areas, like the French River delta, are an important refuge for this long-lived species. And don’t worry about swimming with snapping turtles—they are shy and will generally swim away to escape danger.
