"The New Brunswick landscape is a blend of diverse landforms.
These include three distinct coastlines, remnants of the northern
Appalachian Mountains, steep rivers and sparkling lakes, and the broad
valley of the lower St. John River. Associated with this physical diversity
is a wealth of biological diversity – the diversity of living things."  


~ New Brunswick Biodiversity Strategy, June 2009

  • Is New Brunswick preserving our fair share?

  • How do we compare with other provinces?  

  • How can we build a case and public support for protected areas?

These questions were discussed during the Protected Areas Workshop: Strategies from Across Canada, Growing Support and Making the Case for New Brunswick. Click here for the report.

What do you think?

Why do you love protected areas? Pourquoi aimez-vous les aires protégées?
Are we preserving enough in N.B.? Préservons-nous assez au N.-B.?

Should NB allow ecotourism in protected areas? Est-ce que le N.-B. devrait permettre l'écotourisme dans les aires protégées?

About the Collaborative

The Collaborative Effort on Biodiversity in New Brunswick is a multi-stakeholder effort to address the protection of biodiversity and species-at-risk. The aim of the collaborative is to work together to enhance stewardship activities on the ground and provide a comprehensive approach to the protection of biodiversity in the province. Involved agencies are diverse; the collaborative brings together citizens’ conservation and environmental groups, federal, provincial, and municipal government, academics and researchers, rural and municipal planners, and businesses to work in a spirit of mutual cooperation. Each agency is encouraged to contribute what it can in whatever way possible. Participants pool resources, expertise, knowledge, and experience and, through building upon each others’ strengths, develop and implement coordinated actions that will benefit all of New Brunswick. The Collaborative Effort on Biodiversity in New Brunswick was formed in November 2010 to support the New Brunswick’s Biodiversity Strategy.

The NBEN brings organizations and agencies together to work on biodiversity through its collaborative effort approach.

EIA Needed to Build Bridges: Mount Carleton Park

Friday, 09 September 2016
by Linda Robertson
Attention All New Brunswickers!

There are two bridges being built in Mount Carleton Park.  One of the bridges ( Moose Brook Bridge) is being built in a major moose yard and through a significant wetland.  The other bridge ( Bathurst Lake Thoroughfare), which once was a footbridge, is being built through a wildlife habitat and stream. 

The Department of Environment have given an exemption to the Department of Tourism to build these two new bridges.  They do have a Watercourse Alteration Permit.

The Friends of Mount Carleton Park believe that a full EIA is required. We want the construction to stop and we want the Department of Environment to conduct a full EIA on this construction project.

We are asking everyone to call Minister Serge Rouselle at 453-2690 or send an email at: to voice their concern and to call for an EIA on the 2 bridges construction sites.

Please see CBC article below regarding this issue.

  The long delayed Report on Glyphosate from the NB CMOH, has been released, and its bland conclusions are that human health risks can be reduced if label restrictions are properly followed.   This is in startling contrast to the World Health Organization, WHO, that has named it a “probable carcinogen”.   Who to believe  ?  

Several countries , such as France, Italy, Sweden and the Netherlands argue for a complete ban on its use in forestry and agriculture.  Closer to home, both Quebec and Vermont have banned herbicide use in their Crown Forests.   This has created hundreds of jobs using man-crews for thinning.

On August 10, You can hear firsthand how glyphosate is affecting our forests, our wildlife - and us.   Please join us.

The evening program includes:

-      a film - THE TAINTED FOREST

-       ROD CUMBERLAND, retired DNR Wildlife Biologist

-       PETER GILBERT, co-organizer, STOP SPRAYING NB campaign


WED. August 10, 7 PM  -  doors open 6.30 PM.
