Students to rally for at-risk species

Oct 13 2012

Buttons showing eight endangered species found on Cortes Island will be handed out around downtown Victoria this afternoon as part of an educational rally on the legislature steps.

Young people from Cortes Island created the buttons from original artwork and are pressing the province to bring in species-at-risk legislation, said biologist Sabina Mense, who helped co-ordinate the event.

A group of young Cortes Island residents discovered that B.C. is one of only two provinces in Canada - together with Alberta - without species-at-risk legislation during controversy over logging on the island, Mense said.

"A lot of them started questioning what was going to happen to the animals that live here," she said. "Then they found out that there is no protection for these species in B.C."

The group is supporting a private member's bill introduced by the NDP last year. The provincial species-at-risk task force provided a report to cabinet last year, but government has not yet introduced legislation.
