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.

So, you value New Brunswick’s natural places and you have an area in mind that you think should be protected. Here is your opportunity to tell us about it and, if it is exceptional, get it on the map!
Since announcing New Brunswick’s Contribution to Canada’s Pathway to Target 1 on October 28, 2019, to protect 10% of its land and freshwater, New Brunswick citizens have displayed outstanding support for the protection of New Brunswick’s natural areas. Therefore, the Department of Natural Resources and Energy Development is inviting the public to nominate natural areas on New Brunswick’s Crown Land to be considered for conservation.
