A new Species At Risk Partnerships on Agricultural Lands (SARPAL) intake is opening at 9 AM on May 14th for Ontario farmers.


SARPAL offers 50 per cent cost-share funding to support farmers and agricultural landowners in providing habitat that supports Ontario SAR.  Farmers, particularly those with livestock, manage a significant amount of Ontario’s grassland habitat, as well as many other key travel corridors, food sources and wetland areas.  Funding is available to protect and enhance these critical habitats, supporting SAR such as Rusty Patch Bumblebee, Henslow’s Sparrow, Little Brown Myotis and more.


Up to $20,000 per farm business may be allotted for activities such as tree and shrub planting, establishing in-field perennial grass strips, wetland restoration and grassland restoration. Funds are available until the budget is fully allocated.


Species at Risk Partnerships on Agricultural Lands (SARPAL) is an Environment and Climate Change Canada initiative that is focused on working with farmers to support the recovery of species at risk on agricultural land. SARPAL funds conservation actions currently focused on supporting 12 target Species at Risk.
