Native Species-At-Risk

One of the main goals of the GBLT is to preserve and protect the habitat of all species in and on the Bay, but especially those species that have been designated at-risk by the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources. More information can be found on the Species at Risk page of the MNR website, or click on any species name below for more information from the MNR.
