The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI) program provides data and information to track Canada's performance on key environmental sustainability issues. The Changes in Wildlife Species Disappearance Risks indicator uses the findings of COSEWIC (Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada) to report on wildlife species disappearance risks in Canada. Using a process based on science and Aboriginal and community knowledge, the committee of experts determines the national status of wildlife species that are suspected of being at risk of extinction or extirpation. Information is provided to Canadians in a number of formats including: static and interactive maps, charts and graphs, HTML and CSV data tables and downloadable reports. See supplementary documentation for data sources and details on how those data were collected and how the indicator was calculated.
