Canada lags the world in land protection. New Brunswick needs to step up
In its latest annual report on the state of protected areas in Canada, the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS) is calling upon New Brunswick to step up efforts to protect more land by 2020. CPAWS’ 2017 report “From Laggard to Leader? Canada's renewed focus on protecting nature could deliver results” calls Canada out for ranking last among G7 countries in the percentage of land and freshwater protected for conservation purposes, and encourages governments to conserve Canada’s natural heritage, starting by delivering on their international commitment. New Brunswick ranks 2nd to last among the Canadian provinces and territories.

CPAWS NB Submission on the Proposed Mount Carleton Snowmobile Hub Project
CPAWS is the only nationwide charity dedicated solely to protecting our public land and water, and ensuring our parks are managed to protect the nature within them. We have been very concerned about plans to develop the snowmobile trail network within Mount Carleton Provincial Park, and especially plans to develop the trail up Mount Carleton itself for snowmobile use. Having reviewed the Environmental Assessment Registration document, we remain very concerned due to errors and gaps within the document itself. Our concerns and unanswered questions are itemized below.
