About Us

The South of the Divide Conservation Action Program Inc. (SODCAP Inc.) is a partnership between stakeholders and government with a goal of implementing actions relating to the South of the Divide Multi-Species Action Plan. The draft South of the Divide Multi-Species Action Plan (SOD) was developed as a new type of plan, acknowledging that species work together, sharing habitat and meeting their individual needs within the heterogeneity of the ecosystem. It focuses on a combination of 13 different species listed as “At Risk”, Threatened”, or “Endangered” in the Species at Risk Act.

SODCAP Inc. believes that success lies in developing programs cooperatively that make habitat management for species at risk an important priority and economically sustainable on the landscape. Biodiversity is important to the economic well-being of Saskatchewan. Native prairie supplies important habitat for many of our species at risk, and wildlife as a whole. A healthy ecosystem is a sustainable one, for everyone involved: wildlife, birds, native plants, species at risk, livestock, and humans!

The board of directors is made up a variety of stakeholder groups. We have representatives from the Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association, The Saskatchewan Cattlemen’s Association, Crescent Point Energy, the Ranchers Stewardship Alliance, SaskPower, the Nature Conservancy of Canada, and the Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities, and well as Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment and Environment Canada.

SODCAP was initiated in the fall of 2014, and is currently involved in a variety of different projects.
