Land, Stewardship, and Legitimacy: Endangered Species Policy in Canada and the United States

By Andrea Olive

© 2014

Canada and the United States are similar in terms of the species of wildlife that mingle freely across their shared border. Despite this similarity, however, there are significant differences between approaches to wildlife management in these two nations. In Land, Stewardship, and Legitimacy, Andrea Olive examines the divergent evolution of endangered species policy on either side of the 49th parallel.

Examining local circumstances in areas as distant and diverse as southern Utah and the Canadian Arctic, Olive shows how public attitudes have shaped environmental policy in response to endangered species law, specifically the Species at Risk Act in Canada and the Endangered Species Act in the U.S. Richly researched and accessibly written, this is the first book to compare endangered species policy on both sides of the Canada–U.S. border. It will appeal to students and scholars of environmental policy, politics, and ethics, and anyone interested in current approaches to wildlife management.

    “Rich in facts, Land, Stewardship, and Legitimacy takes on an issue that has needed attention for some time. Andrea Olive’s comparison of Species at Risk Act and Endangered Species Act implementation is brilliant. I have studied endangered species for forty years and this book has pushed my thinking significantly.”


    J. Michael Scott, Department of Fish and Wildlife Sciences, University of Idaho

    Land, Stewardship, and Legitimacy provides an engaging read, a solid contribution to a badly under-researched field, and some concrete recommendations for change. Both policymakers and conservation activists will be interested in the study and its conclusions.”
