After years of calling for action, woodland caribou habitat and a vast lowland region including the Overflowing River preserved for future generations
WINNIPEG – The Wilderness Committee is congratulating the Manitoba government on protecting parts of the Red Deer Lake area as a new Wildlife Management Area, which bans industrial activity. Over the last several years, many Manitobans spoke out through the Wilderness Committee, asking that the wetlands and woodland caribou habitat of this region be permanently protected from development.
Nopiming Provincial park is a wild destination for more than 100,000 people every year. With lots of undeveloped lakes and forests, as well as rivers to paddle down, Nopiming allows access to a peaceful wilderness while also providing a haven for wildlife.
Over the years, human activity has diminished the wild nature of this region, and it’s time we worked harder at preserving Nopiming.
