CBC Newfoundland Morning with Bernice Hillier, Martin Jones
On the right path. The provincial government said last week that it will hold consultations on 10 proposed protected areas. We heard from WERAC, the group that first identified them in a report two years ago
Limestone barrens on the Port au Port and Northern Peninsulas. And virtually untouched forests in Central Newfoundland. Those are just a few of the natural landscapes that could become protected areas. The Newfoundland and Labrador government announced last week that it will hold consultations on 10 proposed protected areas. The decision to act comes more than two years after a report said new protected areas should be established. That report, from May 2021, was by the Wilderness and Ecological Reserve Advisory Council, or WERAC. Graham Wood is co-chair of WERAC.
