Proposed National Park Reserve in the Mealy Mountains

In 2008, Canada and the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador announced a commitment to establish a 10,700 km2 national park reserve in the wilderness area of the Mealy Mountains in Labrador. Once agreements are reached with the province and Aboriginal groups, this national park will be the largest protected area in Atlantic Canada.
It will protect a stunning array of boreal ecosystems and their wildlife such as the threatened Mealy Mountains caribou herd and landscapes of great cultural significance, and provide amazing opportunities for Canadians to experience the east coast boreal forest wilderness.
