Key Biodiversity Areas (KBAs) contain rare or threatened species or ecosystems, or have features that attract large gatherings of animals to feed, reproduce or seek shelter. KBAs can also be unique natural areas that are undisturbed by industrial development. This short brochure by the Wildlife Conservation Society provides a brief overview of the process for identifying KBAs in Canada, and roles that KBAs can play in the Pathway to Target 1 and the establishment of Indigenous Protected and Conserved Areas.
