YOU can help!
Gros Morne National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site treasure on the island of Newfoundland. Its striking scenery and geology attracts thousands of visitors from around the world. However, proposed oil exploration metres from the park boundary is threatening Gros Morne’s future.
Right now, the park is threatened by an oil company proposal to drill a series of exploration wells along the west coast of Newfoundland, using hydraulic fracturing (fracking) to extract oil. The toxic chemicals from the fracking process may contaminate the water, air and soil. This industrial activity, including heavy truck traffic, would also put the region’s sustainable tourism industry at risk.
We don’t want to see our beloved Gros Morne turned into an industrialized landscape. We want to protect its pristine natural beauty that it’s recognized for internationally. CPAWS and concerned local citizens are urging governments to keep the park and surrounding area free of oil drilling and fracking.
Your voice is needed to save Gros Morne. Take a moment to send a message to Canada’s Prime Minister and Newfoundland and Labrador’s Premier to let them know what you think!
Thanks to generous supporters like you, we’re able to launch this campaign today. For more details, click here.
