Pukaskwa National Park of Canada

Heritage Protection

Wilderness management is both a delicate art and a difficult science — it must balance human desire with wildlife needs. In Pukaskwa the survival of a small woodland caribou herd is of particular concern.

Rare Arctic plants — growing here because of Superior's Arctic-like influence — coastal heron rookeries, forest mammals, birds, and inland water quality also need to be protected.

Protecting each element reflects Parks Canada's promise to preserve the Pukaskwa wilderness for future generations.
