Responses to Conservation Questions for Candidates in the 2015 Newfoundland and Labrador Election

Nature NL sent seven questions to each of the provincial parties for the upcoming 2015 Newfoundland and Labrador election. Find each of the party’s answers here. We do not make recommendations or endorsements of any party for political office. These questions are meant for clarification of position on a variety of environmental issues. We ask that you consider their responses when you vote on November 30th.

Capelin Spawning at Middle Cove and Bellevue Beaches

Capelin will soon be rolling on our local beaches. Dr. Craig Purchase (MUN Biology) will give beach side Q&A information sessions on capelin reproduction and other aspects of their biology during the spawning season. We don’t know the actual dates and times at present but we will let you know when Craig will be at Middle Cove and/or Bellevue beaches.
