UINR has received funding for habitat enhancement in the Bras d’Or Lakes. Habitat enhancement is any change that we can make to improve the habitat’s value and its ability to meet the needs of one or more species. For example, we have been involved in placing artificial lobster reefs to provide new habitats for lobster.

We are holding open discussions with First Nations communities in Unama’ki throughout February to hear your ideas on what you think would be the best way use this money. We’ll also tell you about some of the habitat enhancement initiatives that we have done in the past.

Keep an eye out for meeting dates in your community.
