Canadians around the nation are sending letters to halt and reverse nature loss!

This December, officials from 195 countries and the European Union gathered to discuss global progress on nature protection and come up with a plan to halt and reverse nature loss by 2030.

Because the world is watching, Nature Canada’s NatureBus has been visiting communities all over the country to collect messages of support for a plan to restore nature and deliver these messages to the Prime Minister at NatureCOP in Montreal

Although New Brunswick did a fantastic job in gathering letters (including more than 500 gathered right here in Fredericton), we need to keep the pressure on leaders in order to ensure that they follow through with a concrete plan to halt and reverse biodiversity loss.

Thirty percent of all proceeds go to the Conservation Council

So impressed by the efficacy and impact of art to inspire climate action, CCNB now independently supports this creative community.  Under the guidance of Juliana Bedoya and musician/writer/artist activist Laura Barron, artists have continued to express, through art, their ideas and feelings about climate change.

Their work is intended to inspire changes in behaviours in New Brunswick, and to offer a space for reflection on ways we might repair our relationship with nature, partly by experiencing its healing power reflected in the artwork.

Sign On For A Fully-Electric School Bus Fleet In New Brunswick

We’re calling on the New Brunswick government to follow the example of neighbouring Prince Edward Island and Quebec by putting in place a strong mandate and clear targets to achieve a 100 per cent electric school bus fleet over the next few years.

Lack Of Fairness, Trust, Participation Kills Renewable Energy Projects, Not NIMBYism

If developers, governments, and utilities want to build renewable energy projects, they must first build a process that is fair, that citizens trust and in which they can participate and influence outcomes, particularly around siting.

That’s the topline conclusion of the Conservation Council’s year-long research into why renewable energy projects fail from public opposition despite the majority of Canadians being supportive of more wind and solar developments.

Spraying in New Brunswick

Forestry companies spray clearcut areas with herbicides to kill hardwoods and vegetation that compete with the spruce, fir and pine they grow in plantations.

The Conservation Council has long advocated that the province stop the old-fashioned, citizen-funded practice of spraying the forest. Quebec banned the spraying of its public forest more than 15 years ago. Glyphosate, the main active ingredient in most herbicides used in Crown forest operations in New Brunswick, was listed as a probable carcinogen by the World Health Organization’s cancer research agency, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), in 2015.
