In last week’s State of Canada’s Parks Report, we alerted you to a number of negative trends in our parks, and we told you about some recent conservation wins CPAWS helped achieve, and some great opportunities coming up for new parks in the near future.

Nova Scotia: leadership in wilderness protection
We have seen major progress by Nova Scotia towards expanding its parks and protect areas system by 250,000 hectares, meaning that province will move into 2nd place nationally in protecting its lands and freshwater.
Saskatchewan & Manitoba: good news for parks
CPAWS also welcomed Saskatchewan’s announcement to create a new provincial park earlier this year and committed to create more – noting them as a cornerstone of the tourism industry. And Manitoba has announced a new strategy to strengthen protection of many of its existing parks and create or expand up to 10 more.
Your contribution today is an investment in an organization that gets results!
As our report noted, we’re actively working on many exciting plans and proposals for new parks in areas including:
• NWT’s Thaidene Nene,
• Metro Toronto’s Rouge Valley,
• BC’s highly threatened South Okanagan-Similkameen,
• southern Alberta’s Castle Special Place,
• Quebec’s Dumoine River.
With your support, CPAWS can build upon the substantial work already done in these areas. We’ll continue to work diligently to ensure each becomes a success story for wilderness conservation!
Thank you for your generous support.
Yours in conservation,
