Emergency order won’t be enough to save rare, iconic birds, environmental groups say
By Margo McDiarmid, CBC News Posted: Dec 04, 2013 12:29 PM MT
The Canadian government is attempting to save the quickly disappearing greater sage grouse by restricting construction and loud industrial noise near its habitat during certain times of the year.
The restrictions are part of an emergency order for the protection of the endangered bird that is now officially in place. It’s the first time that such an order has been issued under Canada’s Species at Risk Act.
Environment Canada announced in September it would issue the order in an attempt to protect the shy and nervous bird that lives in southeastern Alberta and Saskatchewan.
There are only about 150 sage grouse left and it’s likely the bird will disappear from Canada in five years if steps aren’t taken to protect it. The bird lives in long prairie grass, which has been largely destroyed over the last century by agriculture and oil and gas development.

Chino Otsuka : Imagine Finding Me
Chino Otsuka uses photography and video to explore the fluid relationship between the memory, time and photography. At age 10 she moved from Japan to the United Kingdom to attend school. Her experience of becoming familiar with a new place, a different language and new customs while she was developing her adolescent identity has profoundly shaped her work in photography, video and writing. Her series Imagine Finding Me consists of double self-portraits, with images of her present self beside her past self in various places she has visited. As Otsuka says: “The digital process becomes a tool, almost like a time machine, as I’m embarking on the journey to where I once belonged and at the same time becoming a tourist in my own history.” - via AGO
