The Parks Canada Agency administers 145 national historic sites, 39 national parks and park reserves and 3 national marine conservation areas. At several designated priority sites, Parks Canada is developing and implementing site-specific action plans to achieve the goal of addressing the conservation needs of several species. Two approaches are being implemented: an ecosystem-based, multi-species approach and a single-species approach designed to address the needs of individual species. The following sites and parks are currently designated as priority sites:
- Garry Oak ecosystems at Fort Rodd Hill / Fisgard Lighthouse National Historic Sites, in British Columbia
- Grasslands National Park, in Saskatchewan
- Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site, in Nova Scotia
- Point Pelee National Park, in Ontario
Parks Canada staff also collaborate with other federal, provincial and territorial agencies, as well as with universities and not-for-profit organisations as an active member of many recovery teams.
