Just throwing this out there to chew on but I was reading this story on the cbc.ca website

Check out picture #6 American marten
The fate of the American marten in New Brunswick is of "serious concern" to CPAWS. The animals den, breed and hunt in old forests. The group recommends better conservation of old forests in Mount Carleton Provincial Park and the expansion of Fundy National Park to help the American marten survive. (U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service)


I don't actually believe it will happen but wouldn't it be nice if it did? All the headwaters of the Little Southwest, Sevogle, and NW Miramichi protected from clear cutting and spraying. Perhaps include the Christmas Mountains.

I know, I know, never going to happen but I am a dreamer and what better place to have an Atlantic Salmon National Park. You would connect the different tribs and in the process protect deer, moose, trout, moss, flora, and tons of other animal/plant life.

I remember my father telling me many years ago that the Federal Government was very interested in making Mount Carleton a federal park but chose Kougabaquac (sic) instead. The province stepped in and made it a provincial park. Would love to see a national game preserve or something like that for the Miramichi based on Salmo Salar.

Never say never, with all the bad press the federal government has been getting from the ASF and abroad for cutting atlantic salmon funding, they may intertain such an idea. It simply needs to get in the right hands. I believe the area in question is mostly on crown land.
