Canadian Parks Council (CPC) – Winnipeg, Manitoba – September 11, 2007

Winnipeg, September 11, 2007

Parks Ministers released a report today to help guide their work in restoring habitats, controlling harmful invasive species and re-introducing locally extinct wildlife in Canada’s parks and protected areas. This is the first such set of guidelines produced by and for Canada’s park agencies.

They include improvement in biological diversity, increases in the population and distribution of rare and threatened species, enhanced landscape connectivity, greater availability of environmental goods and services and improvement of the well-being of Canadians.
