Nova Scotians are invited to help shape the approach for protecting 20 percent of the province’s land and water by 2030.

An online public consultation started August 23, at the province’s Collaborative Protected Areas Strategy Engagement page.

The input will be used to develop the Nova Scotia Collaborative Protected Areas Strategy, which will outline how the Province will achieve its 2030 land and water conservation goals and identify next steps.
