Dear Friends of Nature Members,
There is currently a great opportunity for our Friends of Nature members and all Nova Scotians to participate in helping conserve and protect more of our threatened natural landscapes. The Department of Environment/Protected Areas Branch is currently seeking public input into the designation of 6 more protected areas, part of the effort to get to the 13% goal. This is an excellent time to participate, and the time for input ends on March 9, 2020.
I would ask that you take a few moments and visit the website at https://novascotia.ca/parksandprotectedareas/ to learn more and to view these wonderful natural areas that would offer unique habitats that would protect vulnerable flora and fauna into perpetuity. It only takes a few moments to do so and the government needs to hear from folks like us who understand the importance of land protection.
Submit comments by 9 March, 2020 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
