CPAWS and Terra Nova National Park want to hear from you!

Terra Nova National Park is currently reviewing and drafting the park’s next Management Plan – an important document that will guide park management in making the right decisions for the next 5 to 10 years!

Canada’s national parks are places where nature is protected first and foremost, and where people can enjoy and appreciate nature in ways that leave the parks “unimpaired” for the benefit of future generations. Increasing tourism and infrastructure development demands can sometimes put pressure on protected areas to shift the focus away from nature conservation as the top priority – this puts our wildlife and wilderness at risk.

The Park is calling on all members of the public to participate in their online public consultation process to help guide the future direction of the park. This is your opportunity to tell Parks Canada that you want our national parks protected for the future.

Tell Terra Nova Park Management that:

  • You want nature conservation to remain the park’s top priority;
  • National Parks should not be developed to accommodate private, commercial business and tourism; and
  • You want thorough, effective public consultation on all major development proposals

Have your say now!

Our Canadian great outdoors inspire and define who we are. It’s time to make YOUR voice heard for the future of Terra Nova National Park.
