A growing number of people are interested in visiting Sable Island National Park Reserve to conduct research, to connect with its history, or to experience this incredible place and its’ wildlife, including hundreds of wild horses. Visiting can also be a transformative experience capable of inspiring art, science, music, and literature. Facilitating opportunities for people to experience the unique and fascinating features of Sable Island in-person can create lifelong supporters for the island, national parks and conservation in general. At the same time, we must manage visitation carefully to protect those same valued features like the natural processes, wildlife, and ecology of the island.
What do you believe are the most important factors to consider when Parks Canada is making decisions about opportunities for visitors to experience Sable Island National Park Reserve?
