The NB Biodiversity Strategy
CONTEXT
• SOCIETAL DEMAND FOR SUSTAINABILITY,
PROTECTION = EARTH SUMMIT (RIO; 1992)
• GOAL #1 CONSERVE BIODIVERSITY AND USE
BIOLOGICAL RESOURCES SUSTAINABLY
• INVENTORY HABITAT AND SPECIES
• PROTECTED AREAS AND GAP ANALYSES
• ENDANGERED SPECIES LEGISLATION
PROVINCIAL RESPONSE
• GENERAL STATUS OF SP (5 YR REPORTING
CYCLE), CONSERVATION DATA CENTRES
• PROV./FED. MINISTERS AGREEMENT TO
COMPLETE PROTECTED AREA NETWORK (12%)
NEW ENDANGERED SP. LEGISLATION (2012)
• BIODIVERSITY POLICY (2009)
NB BIODIVERSITY POLICY
• GOAL – CONSERVATION OF BIODIVERSITY OF
NB, AND SUSTAINABLE USE OF BIOLOGICAL
RESOURCES
• LED BY DNR, WITH AGRICULTURE AND
ENVIRONMENT
• DEP. MINISTER BIODIVERSITY STEERING CMTE
• NB BIODIVERSITY SECRETARIAT
TARGETS AND THRESHOLDS
• MAIN COMPONENT WAS IDENTIFICATION OF
SPECIFIC TARGETS – MAKE POLICY INTO
PRACTICE
• “Biodiversity values are explicitly defined, and
thresholds and targets are quantitative and
measurable.”
• MINIMUM AMOUNTS OF OLD FOREST AND
FOREST WILDLIFE HABITAT

PROMOTION OF THE STRATEGY
FACILITATE DISCUSSION
WORKING GROUPS
AGRICULTURE, FORESTRY, PLANNING
OLD FOREST WORKSHOP (Nov 2014)
10 RECOMMENDATIONS:
PRACTICES
• MANAGE C.F. TO OPTIMIZE PATCH SIZE (VIA
CONNECTIVITY AND ADJACENT FOREST)
• IDENTIFY/PROTECT EXISTING O.F. IN C.F. NOW
INFORMATION NEEDS
- EXPAND O.F. INDICATORS (SOIL, PATCH
METRICS, STRUCTURE)
RESEARCH ON:
-THRESHOLDS (PATCH SIZE)
-FUNCTIONAL CONNECTIVITY
-MAINTAIN O.F. WITH SILVICULTURE
-EXPAND PSP
-EXPAND LIDAR INVENTORY TO INCLUDE O.F.
ATTRIBUTES
-UPDATE THE ELC, IMPLEMENT A FOREST
ECOSYSTEM CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM
