Protecting our Public Lands and Waters: Keeping Sight of the Big Picture

Public lands are those owned by the federal or provincial governments. In Canada, 100% of our waters are publically owned, and over 90% of our land – 41% by the federal government, and 48% by the provinces. This means that if we are serious about protecting our environment, conserving some wilderness for future generations, and saving some of our iconic wildlife species from extinction, we need to be focused on the BIG picture – protecting and conserving our public lands and waters.
