Canadian endangered species. (News & Events).

The Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC) met in November 2001 to review 37 species at risk. New species added to the list of endangered species include the southern resident population of killer whales and the southern population of tiger salamander. Eleven species, reevaluated using new IUCN criteria, were upgraded from Special Concern to Threatened (e.g. least bittern, Ross's gull, rosyface shiner). The number of species at risk now totals 387:29 Extirpated; 118 Endangered; 94 Threatened; 146 Special Concern. For more information: Canadian Nature Federation, http://www.cnf.ca.
