Tree canopy enhancement part of protection plan following de-listing of bald eagles as endangered species; Ontario, Canada

Bald eagle to be focus of special session - Brantford Expositor - Ontario, CA:
'It is clear the eagles have returned to Brantford and nest-building activities are underway,' said Bricker.
Although species listed as of 'special concern' are not afforded specific protection under the Endangered Species Act, Bricker suggested the task force should entertain a series of questions that the session and the master plan could examine.
They included the need for setbacks to protect the island nesting or future nestings, the use of signage to warn passersby of a nesting area, the protection and enhancement of tree canopy to improve habitat, and acking of the species to build a database.
