Opportunities to visit Sable Island National Park Reserve will always be limited by its remote location. However its rich natural and cultural histories have sparked interest and imagination around the globe. Parks Canada is interested in sharing inclusive and diverse stories of Sable Island’s cultural and natural heritage, including the perspectives of the Mi’kmaq of Nova Scotia, artists and researchers with all of Canadians. As part of this objective, we are looking into ways of creating opportunities for people to connect with and learn about Sable Island without having to travel there. In addition, Parks Canada recognizes the need to present Sable Island’s stories to future generations in a way that is relevant to our country’s increasingly diverse and urban population.
What could Parks Canada do on its own, or in cooperation with others, to better share Sable Island’s natural and cultural heritage with diverse and urban populations, including youth?
