Back in the fall of 2019, Minister of Natural Resources and Energy Development, Mike Holland announced that the province of New Brunswick was going to double the amount of protected land in the province.

This initiative, to increase the amount of protected land in the province has been proposed by successive governments, going as far back as 2012, during the David Alward tenure.

Under the Higgs banner, Minister Holland has seemed to advance this file further than any of his predecessors.

Just this week, the department announced they have identified another 107,000 hectares of Candidate Conserved Areas located on NB crown land.

The public is welcomed to submit comment on the candidate areas, by visiting the interactive map found here.
