The CPAWS-OV Algonquin to Adirondacks (A2A) Committee has launched a program on Species at Risk in the A2A region. The aim is to inform the public and decision makers about the importance of restoring habitat for Species at Risk as part of an overall strategy to maintain and restore connectivity throughout the region between Algonquin Park and Adirondack Park (in New York State). The program will focus initially on the production of written material for selected species, as well as maps of current and historical ranges.

The CPAWS-OV A2A Committee also continues to provide a representative on the Board of Directors of the Algonquin to Adirondacks Conservation Association. Having this presence on the Algonquin to Adirondacks Conservation Association Board provides a great opportunity for CPAWS-OV to stay connected to the work of like-minded organizations and to bring our local concerns to the forefront. The Association is currently evaluating its overall program, so stay tuned for further details.

The CPAWS-OV A2A Committee has also increased its membership in recent months. This will help us undertake a more active role on Species at Risk and other A2A issues.
