Proposed Polar Bear Park

Proposed Polar Bear Park

Far from barren, the tundra and subarctic forests surrounding Manitoba’s Hudson Bay coast yield incredible abundance that sustains both the people and wildlife that thrive here. The continued health of this vibrant ecology and the polar bear, this iconic ambassador of the arctic, are key ingredients to maintaining healthy and prosperous regional communities. The recently proposed Polar Bear Provincial Park presents an opportunity to secure this prosperity and assert Manitoba as a global leader in large landscape conservation.

Woodland Caribou

Woodland Caribou

CPAWS is working to protect threatened woodland caribou from extinction. These spectacular creatures need immense sections of unbroken boreal forest to find enough food and avoid predators. Caribou ranges are continually degrading as human activity, including logging, mining and road networks, push northward throughout Canada – Manitoba being no exception.

The Seal River

The Seal River

In Manitoba’s far north lies one of our most vast and little known wilderness areas, the Seal River watershed. Covering 46,000 square km (an area larger than Denmark), this pristine landscape encircles a realm of unimaginable natural beauty with a richness of geography and ecology unparalleled in our province. CPAWS Manitoba is exploring options for protecting the integrity of this area to ensure it remains intact for future generations to enjoy. Learn more about The Seal River
Ochiwasahow: The Fisher Bay Area

Ochiwasahow: The Fisher Bay Area

Ochiwasahow in Cree, the Fisher Bay region is part of the treasured Boreal forest ecosystem and lies just a few hours north of Winnipeg on the west shore of Lake Winnipeg. CPAWS is working in partnership with Fisher River Cree Nation to ensure that protections in the region are sufficient to sustain this thriving natural landscape as well as the cultural richness and local economic opportunities that depend on a healthy, intact ecosystem.

Pimachiowin Aki – The Land That Gives Life

Pimachiowin Aki – The Land That Gives Life

Manitoba’s east side is in the heart of the Earth’s largest roadless and wild boreal forest region. Continuously inhabited by Indigenous communities for over 6000 years, the region supports a richness of cultural and biological diversity that are inextricably linked. The region is also home to some of the most robust herds of threatened woodland caribou. Learn more about Pimachiowin Aki – The Land That Gives Life
Little Limestone Lake

Little Limestone Lake

Little Limestone Lake, located approximately 450 Km north of Winnipeg, along the highway to Thompson, Manitoba, is the biggest and best marl, colour-changing lake in the world! CPAWS is working in partnership with Mosakahiken Cree Nations to ensure a sufficient area around the lake is protected so the water body’s ecology remains intact and the needs of local communities are met.

Manitoba’s Parks

Manitoba’s Parks

Canada has one of the oldest and most extensive parks systems in the world but, with rapidly increasing development pressures, it is more important than ever to preserve as many deserving and unique wild places as we can before they are threatened. CPAWS Manitoba is dedicated to creating new parks, protected areas, and wilderness corridors and act as a watchdog to ensure that existing ones are well-managed. Learn more about Manitoba’s Parks
