The Acadian forest has been listed as one of six endangered forests in North America. New Brunswick makes up a large portion of the Acadian forest. Ensuring that the Acadian forest is properly managed here in New Brunswick is key to maintaining this unique forest region. The Conservation Council promotes sustainable forestry that provides long-term economic benefits to New Brunswickers while maintaining the ecological health of our forests.
The Conservation Council of New Brunswick is very active in protecting the Bay of Fundy. We raise awareness of the threats to marine habitats, including our ocean, shores and coastal wetlands. Our program, The Fundy Baykeeper, uses a well-marked boat to patrol the Fundy coastline from Alma to St. Stephen. We also work with fishers and other partners to protect habitat and promote sustainable fisheries in the Gulf of St. Lawrence along the eastern coast of New Brunswick.

Fresh water is threatened by many things in New Brunswick including overdevelopment, polluted runoff, and climate change. The Conservation Council created its Freshwater Protection Program to help New Brunswickers take good care of our water and make sure that our rivers, lakes and streams are protected so that people, animals, and plants have the clean water they need to be healthy. We want to ensure enough clean water exists to provide a healthy future for all.
