Notice of permit

Regional or Local Number: SARA-PYR-2008-0099

Notice is hereby given that pursuant to the provisions of section 73 of the Species at Risk Act permit no. SARA-PYR-2008-0099 is issued.

Activity necessary or beneficial to the species

The goal of this project is to implement stewardship activities to protect a species at risk. The project will ‘rescue' seeds of Lupinus densiflorus var. densiflorus (dense-flowered lupine) that are found below the high-tide line. These seeds would otherwise be washed out to sea during storm tides. Sterilized feather forceps will be used to collect seeds from below the permanent vegetation line. Collected seeds will be scattered upslope in areas where dense-flowered lupine plants occur. A maximum of 75% of the seeds below the high-tide line will be collected and distributed upslope. This activity is beneficial to the species. Dense-flowered lupine is an endangered annual plant. Collection of seeds that would otherwise be lost, and retaining them on site will help prevent the population from dwindling.
