Parks Canada and Royal Ontario Museum Formalize Partnership as they Launch World’s Largest BioBlitz

The World’s largest BioBlitz is hosted by Parks Canada in the future Rouge National Urban Park, in collaboration with the ROM, the Toronto Zoo, the existing Rouge Park, Toronto and Region Conservation Authority, the Rouge Valley Conservation Centre, Ontario Nature and the Biodiversity Institute of Ontario. “Nowhere do we have a greater opportunity to share our nation’s greatest natural and cultural treasures with Canadians – including new Canadians, urban Canadians, and young Canadians -in the Greater Toronto Area,” added Minister Aglukkaq. “The 2013 BioBlitz is the perfect example of what can be done when partners join forces and hundreds of citizens dedicate precious time to their community and their country.” “Rouge National Urban Park will be one of the most significant environmental projects ever undertaken in Ontario,” said Tracy MacCharles, MPP for Pickering-Scarborough East. “The Ontario government has protected this important part of the Greenbelt for many years and the BioBlitz helps educate local residents about biodiversity and conservation.” The future Rouge National Urban Park will be created, managed and administered in a way to ensure protection of the area’s rich natural and cultural heritage, while at the same time offering residents of Canada’s largest city outstanding experiences for generations to come. Rouge National Urban Park will also provide Parks Canada the opportunity to better engage with urban Canadians and help them build meaningful connections to Canada’s network of treasured places and iconic landscapes.
