  • » Group fears for moose, bats at Nopiming and Fisher Bay | Aboriginal Boreal Conservation Leaders
    swaths of protected land connecting with each other from coast to coast Canada s parks are small islands of nature in developed landscapes the report says The report singles out the Nopiming moose and little brown bats near Fisher Bay on Lake Winnipeg as two species that are either at risk or could be if there is not significant intervention in Manitoba Since 2000 the estimated number of moose in Nopiming has plummeted from 1 800 to just 700 Increased access for hunting due to an influx of logging roads and a rise in predators such as coyotes and wolves are quickly killing off the moose More than a 60 per cent decline in the last decade is very dramatic and we re seeing those declines across the province Thiessen said Jack Dubois director of the wildlife and ecosystem protection branch of Manitoba Conservation said on the opposite side of the province in Duck Mountain the moose population is down nearly 60 per cent since 1993 As of February there were 1 349 moose counted in the park Dubois said the Manitoba government is embarking on a consultation process with everyone interested in moose in the province We re hoping by this winter we ll have a draft moose management strategy he said We want to stop the rate of decline as soon as we can Manitoba has already put a moratorium on moose hunting in both Nopiming and Duck Mountain something CPAWS credited as a good move But Dubois said there isn t a focus in Manitoba on connecting parks to one another The emphasis is rather on identifying rare or unique species or geological features and protecting them first The next provincial park will likely be Fisher Bay on the south shore of Lake Winnipeg but there s

  • » Species at risk need big, linked parks: report | Aboriginal Boreal Conservation Leaders
    faring in Canada s parks released Friday by the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society There are quite a few species that in fact rely very heavily on parks as their main habitat said Eric Hébert Daly the group s executive director Having really big parks to keep large habitat in tact having them connected to other protected areas is quite essential Animals tend to thrive in larger well managed parks he said The smaller ones that aren t connected tend to be the ones that have a hard time The report praised the government efforts to create more parks including the recently announced Gwaii Haanas National Marine Conservation Area in B C Sable Island in Nova Scotia and the Mealy Mountains in Newfoundland and Labrador It noted that establishing a protective zone around Ontario s Algonquin Park and connecting parks in the Rocky Mountains have had a positive effect on species like the eastern wolf and grizzly bear But some species such as woodland caribou are still struggling In those cases human activity is often to blame Hébert Daly said The moment you start developing roads the predator prey relationship gets unbalanced he said Caribou may have a harder time
