Protect our Rivers

The Atlantic Salmon Conservation Foundation is proud to be part of NB Liquor’s “Protect our Rivers” program again this year. This terrific partnership benefits New Brunswick rivers by providing funds for local conservation projects in New Brunswick. One hundred percent of the funds raised through our partnership are contributed directly to community groups and used to protect and restore New Brunswick streams and rivers. To date, ANBL has helped raise over $250,000 for salmon conservation in NB.

This year, the program will be running from August 24 to September 27 at NB Liquor stores across the province. The list of participating suppliers is attached to this message. We appreciate your support of this great program and ask you to share this message broadly among your networks. Thank you!

New 2015 Moose Draw Dates

Moose Draw Dates Announced for 2015 Season by the Dept of Natural Resources:

01 May 2015

FREDERICTON (GNB) – Hunters can apply for the annual moose draw from May 19 to June 12 for a five-day hunting season.

“We looked at the data collected by biologists and will maintain a five-day season again this year,” Natural Resources Minister Denis Landry said. “However, in the months ahead, our government will consult with stakeholders and collect ideas and thoughts on the management of the moose hunting season for 2016, with the goal of respecting our commitment to return to a three-day season.”

The number of licences will remain practically unchanged for this year at 4,612 licences, only 20 less than last year.

Last year, there were 3,690 moose harvested.

Hunters can register and apply through the province’s new e-licensing system this year. They can also register and apply at vendors, or at Service New Brunswick centres.

The resident moose hunting season will run from Sept. 22 to Sept 26. Every year more than 60,000 people apply to the moose draw.
