As part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site nomination on the east side of Lake Winnipeg.  Manitoba‘s Natural Resources Minister Stan Struthers and his Ontario counterpart joined forces today to protect a 9,400 square-kilometre wilderness area that straddles both provinces.

The protected area includes Woodland Caribou Provincial Park and the Eagle-Snowshoe Conservation Reserve in Ontario and Atikaki Provincial Park and parts of Nopiming Provincial Park in Manitoba.

One of the goals of this plan is to better protect the woodland caribou that live in this region.
