Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 21, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Wednesday, February 21, 1973 Protected on three degrees of danger Whooping crane, prairie chicken on list of endangered species WASHINGTON (CP)-The animals range from the Vancouver Island wolf to the Newfoundland pine marten; the birds from the lordly whooping crane to the greater prairie chicken. They have one tiling in common-they're among Canada's entries on an international list of endangered species. The list-in three degrees of danger-is being drawn up at the 80-country plenipotentiary conference to conclude an international convention on trade in certain species of wildlife. For short, it's endangered species conference. Those on the list do not comprise the full extent of Canada's endangered species, but merely those which could be wiped out by uncontrolled international trade either in the animals themselves or in their products such as hides, feathers or meat. Appendix I is the most-endangered list and species thereon would be under tight control, with any trading strictly on a zoo-to-zoo basis. They include: The American, Arctic and Queen Charlotte Islands peregrine-the gyrfaJcon and the prairie falcon, the whooping crane and the Eskimo curlew, the wood bison, northern kit fox, eastern cougar, blue or cla-cier bear and the black-footed ferret. Appendix II species are not so severely tlireatened but need sound manigement to survive. Commercial trade is possible among these: The pigeon hawk, sparrow hawk and the greater prairie chicken, the Vancouver Island wolf, northern Rocky Mountain cougar and the Newfoundland pine marten and the barren-ground, Lillooet, big plains and chelan grizzly. Appendix ITI is primarily a single-country list and those on it will come under at least permit control allowing for bilateral trade negotiated species by spe>5s: The Roosevet elk, California bighorn and black-tailed prairie dog. One of the Canadian experts at the conference here is Dr. N.S. Novakowski, a staff specialist on mammalogy with the Canadian wild life service. In a recent article, he traced the tragic course of some of the species on the endangered list. Of the black-footed ferret, he wrote: This interesting species was once common in southern Al- berta and southern Saskatchewan and was generally ... a predator of the. prairie dog. The ferret was reduced in numbers as a result of poisoning campaigns to reduce the number of prairie dogs which interfered with ranching operations and cultivation. These are very few records of any black-fcoted ferret being sighted." The barren-ground grizzly of the Northwest Territories is "protected over most of its range by legislation but increased activity by exploration crews poses a new danger to the1 limited population as undoubtedly bears will be shot supposedly in defence of life or property." The big plains grizzly-originally found across Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba-in areas now the major agricul-turl areas of Canada-has "probably retreated and now is synonymous with the Rocky Mountain grizzly." The Vancouver Island wolf "is restricted to Vancouver Island." "Because of earlier extermination programs and present-day expansion of development activities on Vancouver Island, the habitat is becorning continually restricted and numbers are very limited." The northern Rocky Mountain cougar once ranged through the Rockies, down the foothills and across the central great plains to Manitoba. "Because of continual hunting and poisoning programs, numbers have been diminishing rapidly and the animal is becoming more and more restricted to the isolated areas of the Rocky Mountain chain." However, there is a word of hope for one vanis'/ig species in Dr. Novakowski's notes on the wood bison, which once ranged from the southern Mackenzie district of the Northwest Territories south into the United States: "Due to hunting, severe climatic factors and hybridization in the last century, the wood bison was thought to be extinct. However, a small group in Wood Buffalo Park was identified, isolated and transplanted to its historic ranf/e where it is now under protection. "A breeding herd to provide further wood bison stock for transplant now is isolated in Elk Island national park. Th� total population of this species now is approximately 75 animals."
