“The Basics of Species at Risk Legislation in Alberta,” by Professor Shaun Fluker, has been accepted for publication in Volume 50, Issue No. 1 of the Alberta Law Review, scheduled to be published later in the summer of 2012. The paper examines the provisions of Alberta’s Wildlife Act and the federal Species at Risk Act governing endangered species protection in Alberta. The comparative analysis demonstrates that the Alberta government has chosen to govern endangered species almost entirely by policy and discretionary power. Most legal rules are contained in the Species at Risk Act but this federal legislation has very limited application to Alberta lands. Shaun therefore concludes there is a perception of legal protection for endangered species that does not exist in Alberta.
