WWF planning for coastal restoration and enhancement work at a series of sites in NL – where should they go?

World Wildlife Fund Canada is planning for coastal restoration and enhancement work at a series of sites in Newfoundland and Labrador. We are reaching out to sources of local, traditional and other expert knowledge, and acquiring relevant data and information on:

  • Priority aquatic species (Capelin, Atlantic salmon, Arctic char).
  • Other biotic features (birds, vegetation, invasive species, etc.).
  • Existing degradation (pollution, inappropriate use, etc.).
  • Threats (erosion, transportation, urbanization, oil spills, sea-level rise, etc.).
  • Underlying geology, topography/bathymetry and other physical factors.

Here are some ideas to get you thinking:

  • Aggregate filling, such as the replenishment of previously removed substrate.
  • Erosion control infrastructure installation.
  • Vegetation planting.
  • Barrier removal for fish migratory corridors.

Not all submissions will result in immediate action, but will help plan for coastal restoration and enhancement, as well as identify stewardship needs and related opportunities for action. By submitting the form below, you are consenting to allow WWF-Canada to use the information you provide. If you have any questions about the study or would like more information before you consent, please contact one of the people named below.
