About Parks Canada

In 1911, led by visionary James Harkin, Canada established the world’s first national parks service. Today, as it has throughout the entire course of its existence, Parks Canada champions the conservation and enjoyment of Canada’s greatest natural and historic treasures for the benefit of current and future generations.

From coast to coast to coast, Parks Canada manages the national parks, national historic sites and national marine conservation areas of Canada, providing a revered connection between the ‘hearts and minds’ of Canadians and the very essence of this country.

Kokanee Salmon in Kluane

In Kluane National Park and Reserve, proceeds helped fund genetic research of the kokanee salmon to determine viable recovery options. Parks Canada is concerned about declining numbers and the genetic health of the current population.

Turtles at Point Pelee

Point Pelee National Park enlisted the help of experts who recommended new measures to make the local habitat safer for turtles, which will also benefit the park’s snakes, frogs, toads and the endangered ‘five-lined skink’, a tiny lizard familiar to the area.

Bats at Thousand Islands

Thousand Islands National Park researchers acquired special sonic listening equipment for monitoring the park’s bat population. This aids Parks Canada’s critical efforts to fight ‘white-nose syndrome’, a disease that threatens Canada’s entire population of cave-dwelling bats.
