The Manitoba Beef Producers (MBP) wants more of its members to get worried about birds.
About 27 producers, and 17,000 acres, have signed on so far with MBP’s SARPAL pilot in its first year of implementation. SARPAL (Species at Risk Partnerships on Agricultural Lands), an initiative by Environment and Climate Change Canada to tie farmers with conservation projects protecting species at risk, got another foothold in Manitoba in 2017 with the MBP program. SARPAL promised $750,000 over three years for producers in southwest Manitoba to protect grassland birds.
