Stewardship Association of Municipalities Inc

In NL the Eastern Habitat Joint Venture seeks to work with municipalities, corporations and private landowners to join forces to conserve significant tracts of wildlife habitat across the Province. The program’s primary objective is to help communities, developers and landowners become more aware of the value of wildlife habitat within their jurisdictions and to empower them to conserve and enhance these areas.

Stewardship agreements represent formal public commitments among interested parties and the provincial government to conserve valuable wildlife habitat. These agreements and associated habitat conservation plans outline the wetland, coastal or species at risk habitat to be protected and identify future habitat-conservation enhancement strategies.

The Stewardship Association of Municipalities Inc. (SAM) is an incorporated, non-governmental organization formed by municipalities that have signed stewardship agreements. Member municipalities work in partnership with the provincial government to retain and enhance important wildlife habitat within municipal planning boundaries. Membership is open to all municipalities that commit to the securement of valuable wildlife habitat within their planning boundaries by entering into a formal agreement with the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador under the Municipal Habitat Stewardship Program.


How to Get Involved in Wildlife and Habitat Stewardship

Any municipality, corporation or individual landowner in Newfoundland and Labrador is invited to inquire about becoming involved in wildlife and habitat stewardship by contacting the Stewardship Section of the Newfoundland Department of Environment Conservation Wildlife Division. If your community is home to significant wildlife populations, special areas of wetland/coastal habitat and/or species at risk, you can play a lead role in the conservation of the Province’s wildlife habitat with just a few simple steps:

1. Request an introductory meeting and site visit conducted by stewardship staff
2. If there is mutual interest, stewardship staff will submit a proposal for review and potential acceptance
3. Stewardship agreement signing
4. Habitat Conservation Plan development, review and signing
5. Implementation of the Habitat Conservation Plan

As of 2014, 33 municipalities, 2 corporate bodies and a number of private landowners in several communities have signed stewardship agreements with the Province. Collectively, these individuals, communities and corporations represent a significant conservation movement in Newfoundland and Labrador. Altogether, partners have secured over 13,350 hectares of wildlife habitat and positively impacted (in part by municipal planning) an additional 161,870 hectares through the implementation of
wise-use principles.
