Murre Fund

Newfoundland and Labrador Murre Conservation Fund

* Applications are due mid October *

Fund Goals and Objectives

To direct a portion of the revenues derived from the sale of the Canadian Wildlife Habitat Conservation Stamp toward conservation activities that will enhance Murre management and protection, to help ensure a sustainable Murre population.

The Murre Conservation Fund was created and is currently managed by Wildlife Habitat Canada and Birds Canada, in consultation with the Canadian Wildlife Service and the Wildlife Division of the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador.

The priorities of the Murre Conservation Fund are to fund projects that support conservation and management of Murre populations and their habitat, as well as projects that introduce the people of Newfoundland and Labrador to the conservation, management, and sustainable harvest of Murre. This includes:

  • Assessments of Murre breeding populations, productivity, survival, harvests, and other mortality factors;

  • Facilitation of Murre hunting stewardship and conservation to ensure populations are sustained;

  • Activities and events that focus on the long-term conservation of high quality Murre habitat, particularly that which is vulnerable.
