    Poweshiek Skipperling; Recovery Tales of a Tiny Butterfly - Dec 10, 2020

    Even more threatened than the giant panda, the Poweshiek skipperling has only been observed in seven Canadian locations within the last five years, all of which are located in the Nature Conservancy of Canada’s Tall Grass Prairie Natural Area in southeastern Manitoba. In the United States, populations only appear on a handful of sites in Michigan, and their status in Wisconsin is uncertain. Meet the conservation staff from the Nature Conservancy of Canada, Assiniboine Park Zoo and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service who lead the international recovery efforts of the Poweshiek skipperling, and discover how their collaboration is helping improve populations in North America.

  • Recovery and Resilience in the Grasslands
    Recovery and Resilience in the Grasslands - Jun 25, 2020

    Nature Conservancy of Canada x Calgary Zoo - Sage Grouse Project
    Complex problems require collaborative solutions. The reintroduction of the greater sage-grouse and their ongoing recovery in their home range in the southern grasslands of Alberta and Saskatchewan is an effort led by science and expertise, but it is fueled by passion and hope. Greater sage-grouse has been listed as endangered in Canada since 1998 and just a few years ago there were fewer than 50 of them left in Canada. Learn more about this partnership between NCC, the Calgary Zoo and Alberta Environment & Parks.
