            Species loss has always been a part of the natural cycle on Earth, but in recent years, human activity has sped up the process. In an article written by Drew Monkman, it is emphasized that action needs to take place to control the issue of declining biodiversity. In Ontario specifically, there has been a significant decline in populations of snakes, turtles, and freshwater mussels, as well as any animals which rely on these species as a food source. Approximately 30% of Ontario species groups are either sensitive or at risk.

This news article, from CBC Windsor, states that there will be a public forum to be held in Toronto concerning the invasion of the Asian carp in the Great Lakes. The Asian Carp is an invasive species currently making its way from the United States into the Great Lakes. Because they are voracious eaters, they are making it difficult for native species of fish to compete for food supply. The forum will be hosted by the Fisheries and Oceans Canada Ministry as well as the Great Lakes Fishery Commission.
