The Newfoundland and Labrador (NL) Nature Atlas is an on-going collaboration between the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) and the Environmental Policy Institute (EPI) of Grenfell Campus, Memorial University.
One of its goals was to encourage collaboration between interest groups, such as Indigenous organizations, students, professors, community members, land-management experts and GIS professionals.
The website was initially designed to be a one-stop hub for the best available information on the biological and physical features of Labrador.
We are currently entering into a new phase of the NL Nature Atlas, expanding the NCC and EPI partnership. Both groups have come together to establish renewed project goals that will not only maintain the NL Nature Atlas, but also broaden its scope and applications.
