Thank you to all who nominated new lands
and waters for protection

How does the conservation process work?

1. NOMINATE A SITE:

Candidate Conservation Areas are created by considering nominations by Conservation leaders, Rights holders, stakeholders, and Citizens.  If you have an area you think should be protected, send in your nomination by January 31st, 2021. 
  

2. CANDIDATE CONSERVED AREA:

Inform the protection and long-term management of a Candidate Conserved Area by checking out our interactive map and completing a local knowledge survey. Sign up for our mailing list to stay up to date as new CCAs are added into 2021.
 

3. PROTECTED AREAS:

Sign up for our mailing list to stay up to date on newly protected areas as they are announced starting in 2021.  

 

You submitted a nomination,
what comes next?
 

  • The Department of Natural Resources & Energy Development’s conservation team is considering all nominations and developing those that make positive contributions towards our Nature Legacy goals into Candidate Conserved Areas.

  • Developing a nomination into a Candidate Conserved Areas takes time. Be assured, if we have questions about a nomination, we will reach out over the coming weeks. 

  • All resulting Candidate Conserved Areas will be made available for comment on our interactive map this spring. In the meantime, please take the time to submit comments on our recently published Candidate Conserved Areas.
