These are places worth conserving
New Brunswick is home to sandy beaches and salt marshes brimming with life.
New Brunswick’s wetlands and coastal areas support waterfowl from as far south as the Caribbean to as far north as the sub-Arctic. They supply birds with a place to nest and raise their young. They filter water, protect our coastlines, and give people a place to connect with nature.
Our changing environment is putting wetlands at risk. Extreme weather. Rising sea levels. Urban development. Land conversion. Sixty-five per cent of wetlands in Canada’s coastal areas have been altered or destroyed. It’s time for conservation efforts that will protect the defining natural features of Canada’s east coast. These are treasures we can’t afford to lose.
