In 1996, the development of a conservation strategy was commissioned by the Carolinian Canada Steering Committee. At that time, Ontario was undergoin a major shift of responsibilities from the province to municipal governments. At the same time, conservation programs were also in a period of rapid change. Because of these changes, a new focus was developed for Carolinian Canada. A program more community-oriented that addresses the landscape rather than individual sites and one that builds broad support would have better prospects for success in the future.
