The Government of New Brunswick is leading a provincial initiative to double the amount of protected land in New Brunswick and achieve a target of 10% protection.
Indigenous Nations, scientists, naturalists, watershed organizations, hunting and fishing clubs and other outdoor recreation groups as well as citizens have all contributed to the identification of new protected areas.
We are excited to share this initiative with New Brunswickers, and invite you to follow the progress as our special, natural places are protected.

"We recognize that only through a collaborative effort can such an ambitious task be achieved. Our department is engaging with First Nations, conservation organizations, and natural resource industries to achieve the target."
