Maintaining Biological Diversity

Biological diversity supports all living things in a given place and has ecological, economic, social, cultural and intrinsic values for present and future generations. As a result of good stewardship, resilient ecosystems, New Brunswick is rich in biodiversity. Stewardship is an ongoing shared responsibility of citizens, governments, First Nations, corporations, private organizations, landowners, and neighboring jurisdictions.
