Outline of Bay du Nord Wilderness Reserve Management Plan

The Bay du Nord Wilderness Reserve is established for the purpose of protecting a multitude of natural features which make it a fitting representative of wild Newfoundland. The area contains the habitat of moose, caribou, representative vegetation and several major river systems. The reserve is an important wilderness resource for the use of people for outdoor recreation and the expanding adventure tourism market.

Management policies have been devised for the reserve to protect its significant wilderness values. These include no new development such as roads, cottages, wharves and the like. Forest harvesting, mining and other intensive activities will be prohibited. Natural succession will be allowed to continue with no habitat modification to occur. Scientific study and educational use in the reserve will be encouraged. Hunting, fishing, trapping, camping and other recreational activities will be permitted. Permits to enter the reserve will be required but they will be issued free of charge for a maximum of 6 months duration.

The managing agency for the reserve is Parks and Natural Areas Division of the Department of Tourism, Culture and Recreation. The Middle Ridge Wildlife Reserve is managed by the Wildlife Division of the Department of Forest Resources and Agrifoods.
