Municipality Award: Town of Carmanville Habitat Committee




   The Town of Carmanville is a community of 727 people located on the northeast coast of Newfoundland. In 1995, Council and staff signed a municipal habitat stewardship agreement with the provincial goverment in which they agreed to work together to conserve valuable wetland and wildlife habitat found on Crown land within their planning boundaries.


   This agreement has been formally expanded twice since that time to include additional habitat in 1996 and 2007. The Habitat Committee was formed to oversee the implementation of the agreement and an associated Habitat Conservation Plan. An updated version of this plan was drafted and approved by Council in the fall of 2013.


   The Habitat Committee has been involved in ongoing wildlife conservation and community engagement projects. This past year, the committee engaged in a project with Ducks Unlimited Canada to place nesting shelters on the offshore Penguin Islands. The wooden shelters provide time to allow the chicks to become more mature before they take to the water thus giving them a greater chance for survival. The technique has been demonstrated to be highly successful in reducing chick mortality.


   The Carmanville Habitat Committee is also known for promoting environmental awareness at its Interpretation Center while promoting its walking trail located on Route 330. With a total of four kilometers bordering the beautiful Carmanville Pond, it makes for a true paradise for hikers, birdwatchers and photographers alike.
