Management of the landscape with the goal of functioning ecosystems is part of the approach to maintain viable populations and recover species at risk. A viable population is the number of individuals needed to ensure that population does not become extinct in the wild. A viable population should be able to withstand extinction from natural disasters, or environmental shifts. Species that are extinct or extirpated do not have viable populations within Canada, and those species listed as "at risk" are nearing numbers below those necessary for viable populations.
