Conservation in national parks
National parks are created to conserve and develop territories that are representative of the different natural regions of Québec. They are home to many species, some of which are rare or vulnerable. They protect some of the most beautiful landscapes of the province. They enable the population to connect with nature and have memorable experiences.
Achieve the conservation mission
Conservation is the priority objective of national parks. To achieve this mission, Sépaq acts on many fronts to protect these natural jewels, address the issues identified in the conservation plans, and monitor the health status of the parks so as to intervene quickly when a problem is identified. Sépaq ensures that territories are used and developed in such a way as to reduce the human footprint on natural environments as much as possible, and the organization works in conjunction with stakeholders from peripheral areas to reduce pressure from outside the parks. It also disseminates conservation projects to inspire all Quebecers to adopt best practices to protect Québec’s natural environment.
