Over 95% of New Brunswick is currently unprotected and open to exploitation that could harm wildlife and damage the natural beauty of our province.

We need to act now to change that.

Through the Convention on Biological Diversity, Canada has signed on to conserve 17% of land and freshwater by 2020.  As Canadians, it is our shared responsibility to hold the government accountable to achieving this target.

We ask you to speak out to your provincial representatives to declare your support for increased land conservation in the province and encourage them to set their own conservation goals for the province and develop an action plan to achieve these goals. 

A vast majority of Canadians agree that protecting the environment is one of the most important issues currently facing our country. In a recent national conservation survey, 87% of Canadians support increasing the number of natural areas protected from development, including national parks.

We’ve made it easy for you to take action! It takes less than a minute with our template to send a letter to your local MLA, or you can gather signatures from friends and family to pledge their support for land conservation in New Brunswick.

(UPDATE: APRIL 2019) So far over 1,500 New Brunswickers have signed the pledge in support of land conservation! Over 800 of these signatures were brought to the New Brunswick Legislature and were tabled by David Coon, MLA for Fredericton-South and leader of the New Brunswick Green Party. View the tabling of the petitions here.
