Not a second to spare: environmental groups react to Ontario government’s plan for recovering endangered eels- Ottawa Riverkeeper, the Canadian Wildlife Federation (CWF), Ontario Rivers Alliance (ORA), and Ontario Nature joined forces today in calling for urgent and immediate action by the Ontario government to reverse the ongoing decline of the endangered American Eel, whose numbers have collapsed by a staggering 99% in Ontario since the 1980s. The call comes in the final days of the province’s public consultation on its draft Government Response Statement — in essence, it’s an action plan for recovering this endangered species. While applauding the publication of these long-delayed commitments, the groups and their supporters are urging Ontario to go further — and faster — than what it is proposing.
