The Canadian Roundtable for Sustainable Beef has several members working towards conservation of endangered and species-at-risk in Canada.
Meet some organizations working towards the restoration and conservation of endangered and species-at-risk here in Canada.
Cows and Fish is a non-profit society striving to foster a better understanding of how improvements in grazing and other management of riparian areas can enhance landscape health and productivity, for the benefit of landowners, agricultural producers, communities and others who use and value riparian areas.
The MULTISAR program gives ranchers and farmers suitable tools to continue this
tradition in modern times. To date, this collaboration between agencies and landholders has resulted in the voluntary stewardship of grassland species on over 382,000 acres in southern Alberta.
Species at Risk Partnerships on Agricultural Lands (SARPAL) is an Environment and Climate Change Canada initiative focused on working with farmers to support the recovery of species at risk on agricultural landscapes. SARPAL funds on-the-ground conservation actions that support various species at risk (SAR), but specifically targets the following SAR: Loggerhead Shrike, Henslow’s Sparrow, Barn Swallow, Bobolink, Eastern Meadowlark, Grasshopper Sparrow, American Badger, Little Brown Bat, Eastern Foxsnake, Gypsy Cuckoo Bumble Bee, Rusty-patched Bumble Bee and Monarch.

ALUS, originally an acronym for Alternative Land Use Services, is a charitable organization with an innovative community-developed and farmer-delivered program that produces, enhances and maintains ecosystem services on agricultural lands. Projects such as wetland restoration and enhancement, riparian buffers, shelterbelts, afforestation and native prairie grass restoration provide cleaner water and air, habitat, carbon sequestration and climate resiliency.
Meet Rob Stavne, an ALUS participant from Northern Sunrise, Alberta.
He talks about wetland enhancements he did on his land and how the species richness increased following the establishment of these projects.
