Ask the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador to release the provincial protected areas strategy

It comes as a surprise to many people that the province of Newfoundland and Labrador is three times the size of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island put together. Although the Province is known world-wide for its once-proud marine fish stocks, many other globally significant natural features occur there. These include seabirds (up to 40,000,000 every year), rare and endemic plants, and the Province's spectacular geology and fossils. Yet, many of these globally significant features remain unprotected because the Provincial Government has not released the protected areas strategy called the "Natural Areas Plan".

The Natural Areas Plan, or NAP, has been "sleeping" for over 10 years. The candidate protected areas were originally designed by a Government committee in 1995-1996. When the committee submitted its final report in 1996, they recommended the immediate release of the plan for public and industry review. As of February 22, 2006 the plan and the candidate areas had not been released. Unfortunately, this means that Newfoundland and Labrador is the only Province in Canada that has not released (let alone implement) its protected areas strategy. More importantly, candidate area boundaries are being revised or even eliminated without public debate.

The current administration of the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador was elected in 2003. One of their election platforms was the release of the Natural Areas Plan. They have been in office now for over two years, yet the plan remains hidden in the halls of Government.

Please help CPAWS-NL by letting Premier Danny Williams know that you support the release of the Natural Areas Plan.
