Introduction:

In order to be successful, "species-at-risk" recovery efforts must involve a combination of stewardship, community involvement, conservation science, management, and education.

A coordinated approach ensures that resources are used in the most efficient and effective manner.

In our "limestone barrens" region, partnerships are continuously being created, and strengthened, as the Limestone Barrens Habitat Stewardship Program (LBHSP) reaches out to communities, government, and Memorial University (MUN).

Some of the partners are:

Sandy Cove Limestone Barrens Action Committee (SCLBAC)
NL Dept. of Environment and Conservation, Parks and Natural Areas Division
NL Dept. of Environment and Conservation, Wildlife Division
Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN)
Limestone Barrens Habitat Stewardship Program (LBHSP)
NL Dept. of Business, Tourism, Culture and Rural Development (formerly the NL Dept. of Innovation, Business and Rural Development (IBRD)
Limestone Barrens Species at Risk Recovery Team (LBSARRT)

Each partner is distinct, but shares at least one common objective: to further the conservation and sustainable use of the "limestone barrens" in an effort to protect it for present and future generations.

In particular, the SCLBAC takes pride in the fact that it is part of ground-breaking research, since there has never been any restoration of northern limestone barrens habitat, anywhere in the world.

Indeed, there are not even any protocols to follow for limestone barrens restoration, at present, anywhere in the world.

However, the development of such Habitat Restoration Protocols in now underway on our Great Northern Peninsula.

Local community members will continue to be engaged in an integrated approach to limestone barrens species-at-risk enhancement at the community level in Sandy Cove.
