UNB professor Dr. Tom Beckley delivered the presentation, Same As It Ever Was: Current Directions in NB Forest Policy, on Feb. 7th as part of the Occupy Speaker Series.
Based on a recent survey conducted by Beckley and others, the people of New Brunswick are not happy with the way our forest is managed. The highest ranking priorities of the survey respondents said the forest should be managed as a place for protection of water, air, and soil and as a place for a variety of animal and plant life.
The new forest policy will roll out shortly. Will the Alward government listen and protect our wildlife habitat areas to the extent that scientists say is needed?
Let the government know what is important to you about our forest, and what you expect government to do.
