With the Conservation Council of New Brunswick celebrating our 50th Anniversary, this special edition of EcoAlert Magazine rolls back the clock to shine a light on the many campaigns and landmark public policy victories achieved by the Conservation Council and its supporters since founding in the fall of 1969.

In this issue: • What the 1991 acid rain agreement taught us about taking a stand • Musquash paddle and the importance of marine preservation • The Conservation Council’s ongoing fight to protect New Brunswick’s freshwater • The history of New Brunswick’s fracking moratorium • A look back at the Conservation Council’s Awards and achievements • New Brunswick youth take center stage in fight against climate action • and more…

How to use the online EcoAlert:

You can flip through the pages of EcoAlert online in a few different ways: hover your cursor over the bottom corner of the page; click on the shaded bar running up along the right-hand-side of the magazine; or use your mousewheel.

To enter full screen mode, click on the furthest button to the right on the gray menu bar at the top of the magazine (looks like a little computer monitor). This menu also includes buttons for searching the document, sharing it with friends, or accessing more options.

Click on the page to zoom in. Use the cursor or directional keys on your keyboard to move around the page. If the cursor moves too loose, you can get more control by clicking the button called ‘Move by mouse position.’ To access this feature: enter full screen mode, double-click on the page, a new menu bar will appear near the bottom of the page. The ‘Move by mouse position’ is the last button on the far right (looks like a hand with brackets around it). This will let you move the cursor freely without moving the page. If you want to move around the page in this mode, just click and drag your cursor.
