The Government of New Brunswick is leading a collaborative initiative, working with Indigenous partners, conservation groups, stakeholders and the public, to double the amount of protected land in New Brunswick and achieve a target of 10% protection.
Through collaboration with Indigenous conservation leaders, lands will also be protected that contribute to implementation of Aboriginal and Treaty rights, the conservation of Indigenous culture, and reconciliation with Indigenous peoples.
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."
