Action plan for preserving biodiversity on the Magdalen Islands

This project’s main focus was to establish a concerted strategy to work on preserving Magdalen Islands’ biodiversity. The project was comprised of different phases, and was carried out over a two-year period between the fall of 2012 and the spring of 2014. It ended in April 2014 when the Action plan for preserving biodiversity on the Magdalen Islands was produced. The main goal of the project was the following: "Engage the population and key stakeholders in an ecosystemic approach to work on preserving biodiversity and restoring endangered species on the Magdalen Islands". A variety of activities were carried out within the scope of this project:

1) A retrospective of activities done to restore endangered species by Attention FragÎles over the past 20 years;

2) Two workshops on preserving biodiversity;

3) Visits to the field with key local stakeholders;

4) Public conference: "Magdalen Islands – Cape Hatteras: Two territories facing similar challenges" with speaker Michael Murray, former superintendent of Cape Hatteras National Seashore Park in the United States;

5) Presentation of the Action plan for preserving biodiversity on the Magdalen Islands.

The action plan is based on a common vision developed in collaboration with local stakeholders, and draws from the Strategic environmental intervention plan (PSIE). It earmarks a series of actions for upcoming years that aim to position the Islands as a benchmark when it comes to protecting biodiversity. It includes three main directions, eight common goals, and 19 global actions, which are described in exploratory fact sheets.
