Dear colleagues,

Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) is pleased to inform you that the draft Action Plan for the Transient (Bigg's) Killer Whale (Orcinus orca) in Canada and the amended Recovery Strategy for the Transient Killer Whale (Orcinus orca) in Canada are now undergoing regional consultations.

The draft Action Plan, amended Recovery Strategy, background information, and an online comment form are available through our website, at: http://www.pac.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/consultation/sara-lep/transientkw-epmigrateur/index-eng.html.

Note that the amended Recovery Strategy includes proposed critical habitat, which we anticipate will be legally protected through a Critical Habitat Order.

We invite you to provide feedback on the document before September 30, 2016.  Your input is valuable to the development of the Action Plan and amended Recovery Strategy, and will contribute to the overall recovery and long-term survival of these whales in Canadian Pacific waters.

If you have any questions, or would like more information about the process for developing the Action Plan and/or amended Recovery Strategy, please contact our Species at Risk Program at: +1-604-666-7907 or SARA at pac.dfo-mpo.gc.ca<mailto:SARA at pac.dfo-mpo.gc.ca>.

Thank you,

Sheila Thornton
DFO Species at Risk Recovery Planner
