Growing parks and protected areas

Hi Paov,

Outdoor spaces are absolutely vital — for our health, wellness and to give us solace. But recent crowding and capacity concerns highlight that we don’t have enough parks and protected areas.

In our latest publication Need More Nature: Growing Parks and Protected Areas, you’ll read the reasons why more parks and protected areas are urgently needed, and how we can grow parks in a good way.

I need more nature! Although provinces and territories hold pieces of the protected-area puzzle, no jurisdiction is doing enough. We can change that, but only with your help.

I hope you will join us and embrace this park vision — one that starts with decolonizing and ensuring Indigenous leadership. One that insists parks are critical to protect biodiversity and preserve our climate. One that engages and inspires us to build more people powered trails into nature.

For decades scientists have told us we need to grow protected areas. You’ve been with us calling on governments to protect places like Algonquin Provincial Park in Ontario, the Stein Valley Nlaka’pamux Heritage Park in BC and Fisher Bay Provincial Park in Manitoba. We’ve had some important successes! There’s still more to do.

You can make a difference.

Check out our latest publication, including our online action tool that helps you get a commitment on more parks.

The movement to protect nature is mightier right now than I’ve ever witnessed. Tens of thousands of folks just like you are ready to commit to growing parks and protected areas. Together, we can preserve the wilderness that nurtures us.
