Parks Canada Agency Report highlights Parks Canada’s efforts to maintain and restore ecological integrity
June 8th, 2018 - Ottawa - Parks Canada’s Conservation and Restoration (CoRe) program plays an important role in supporting healthy ecosystems, protecting wildlife, and tackling climate change, and contributing to the recovery of species at risk. Science and Indigenous knowledge are the foundation for conservation action to restore ecological integrity in Parks Canada’s places – and many CoRe projects contribute to reconciliation and renewed relationships with Indigenous peoples.
Today, the Minister of the Environment and Climate Change and Minister responsible for Parks Canada, Catherine McKenna, announced the release of A natural priority – A report on Parks Canada’s Conservation and Restoration Program, highlighting 41 conservation projects from coast-to-coast-to-coast.
The report outlines conservation challenges in national parks, marine conservation areas, and historic sites, and also covers Parks Canada’s approach to addressing these issues as well as the main accomplishments of the CoRe program. About half of all projects are collaborations with Indigenous communities or partners, who made invaluable contributions to their success.
