Abstract
This report gives an overview of the efforts to protect marine mammals and their habitats in Canada. The socio-economic impact that commercial whaling, sealing, and overfishing have had on the general public is highlighted in order to understand why Canadians care about the long-term perpetuation of our diverse national ecosystems. Canada has initiated many programs to identify and recover species at risk and the three examples discussed epitomize these efforts. Finally, the conservation of all forms of wildlife in this country, whether abundant or endangered, is engrained in our federal statutes and regulations and several examples are given.
