Save Gros Morne

Gros Morne National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site treasure on the island of Newfoundland. Known for its striking scenery and geology, the park attracts visitors from around the world.

A proposal to drill and frack for oil within metres of the park boundary poses a serious threat to its pristine natural beauty and ecosystems and would also put the region’s sustainable tourism industry at risk.

On November 5th the Newfoundland and Labrador government announced a moratorium on “fracking” in the province, to allow time for further study and public consultation.  While this temporary measure is good news, it will not protect Gros Morne from fracking in the long term, nor does it prevent conventional oil drilling or other potential industrial threats from happening right now.

That’s why CPAWS is urging the federal and provincial governments to act immediately, during this pause, to establish a buffer zone around Gros Morne National Park to keep the park and surrounding area permanently free of oil drilling and fracking, and other industrial threats. Click here to learn more.

You can help by urging the provincial and federal governments to act now to protect Gros Morne forever!
