Action on the Ground: Volume 3

What is Action on the Ground?

In the past five years, we have invested in an ambitious program to restore the ecological integrity of Canada’s national parks. Projects carried out by Parks Canada to improve the health of national park ecosystems is what we mean by Action on the Ground. With 36 Action on the Ground projects currently underway across Canada, we are hard at work restoring ecological integrity of park ecosystems. Our Action on the Ground projects are guided by three internationally recognized principles. To be successful, ecological restoration should be

  • effective by re-establishing and maintaining natural and cultural values of protected areas;
  • efficient by maximizing beneficial outcomes while minimizing costs in time, resources and efforts; and
  • engaging by ensuring collaboration with partners and stakeholders, promoting participation and enhancing visitor experience.
