Looking sharp!

Filed under: Nature watch — Jocko @ 5:00 am

The sharp-tailed snake is a rare, native, endangered, secretive, harmless creature possibly in your own backyard. Have you seen one? Christian Englestoft, Herpetologist (reptile and amphibian expert) and Todd Carnahan, HAT Land Care Coordinator would like to know. HAT is a non-profit organization conserving significant habitats for over ten years. As part of the federal government’s Habitat Stewardship Program, free consultations and land care packages are available by calling 250.995.2428; visiting or by emailing them at If you are lucky, you may be invited to attend one of their neighbourhood information meetings about species at risk on Pender.

  1. Do you have a special place on your land that you would like to protect? Perhaps frog-filled wetlands, a Garry Oak meadow, a glade of fawn lilies, a sensitive ecosystem?

    The Nancy Waxler Morrison Biodiversity Protection Fund can assist by defraying the costs of placing a protective conservation covenant on your special place.

    Please contact Barrie Morrison at (250) 629-3774 (evenings) for information.

    This fund is administered by the Pender Islands Conservancy Association (PICA).
