* Some wildlife species have a date of listing but have ‘no status’ in the SARA Status column. In these cases, COSEWIC has created new assessment units from wildlife species that have a Schedule 1 status. They appear in the list because the new unit is being considered along with a change of status. In practice, the SARA status remains in effect until Schedule 1 is change.
