  • Print

PAQUETVILLE, N.B. - The Nature Conservancy of Canada says it hopes to grow its network of protected land in northeastern New Brunswick through a pair of new funding partnerships.

The organization says the New Brunswick government will invest $500,000, while the Acadian Peninsula Community Foundation has pledged to raise $100,000 for a new endowment fund.

The conservancy says it will use the endowment fund in education projects and the maintenance of newly conserved lands on the Acadian Peninsula.

It says the peninsula is home to wetlands, beaches, dunes and forests that provide habitat for 20 at-risk species, including the endangered piping plover.

The conservancy says there are already more than 30 conservation projects in coastal areas of the peninsula, including Tabusintac, Miscou Island, Neguac, Tracadie-Sheila and Inkerman Ferry.
