Protecting Habitat: A Guide for Municipalities on Prince Edward Island provides tools that municipalities, especially those in rural PEI, can use to protect habitat within their borders. The guide includes introductory information on identifying habitat areas and developing a buffer and edge policy. Other topics include minimum forest cover, subdivision design, building setbacks, and communication tools.
The resource was written by Janice Harper, RPP, for the Federation of PEI Municipalities with financial support from Environment and Climate Change Canada, and the Province of PEI through the PEI Forested Landscape Priority Place for Species at Risk initiative.
