Newfoundland and Labrador Parks and Protected Areas Forum 2015
Newfoundland and Labrador has for many years been recognized an exceptional place for wilderness experiences, something that has been valued by our people and attracted visitors from away. Protection of a part of our natural landscapes in the form of national and provincial parks, wilderness reserves, and other protected areas has always been recognized by citizens and governments as essential to our well-being and our economy. In recent years, while we have seen increasing prosperity through resource development, progress in establishing needed new protected areas and adequately maintaining the existing ones has slowed, and some important associated programs have been cut. We believe it is time to renew the dialogue about the importance of our parks and protected areas and the values that they represent, and to find a way forward to maintain our natural heritage for future generations.

CPAWS NL, plans to hold a forum, Newfoundland and Labrador Parks and Protected Areas 2015, in which people from around the province will have the opportunity to discuss current issues and to provide input toward a policy to revitalize our provincial parks and natural areas system. This will be a one-day forum, held in St. John’s with a series of invited speakers and panel presentations, with ample time for discussions. Outcomes will include a report, resolutions, and follow-up for further communication and involvement.
