Final Days to Comment on Ottawa’s Proposed Wildlife Construction Protocol

Until 6 March, the city will accept comments on the draft Wildlife Construction Protocol, which recommends that developers choose a time of year to clear vegetation and cut down trees that reduces the chances of killing wildlife during bitterly cold winters or creating orphans during the birthing season.
