Save Gros Morne
Gros Morne National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that protects 1,805 square kilometres of western Newfoundland’s coastal lowlands and towering Long Range Mountains. The park is world-renowned for its geological features and its pristine natural beauty. The park encircles several small communities, and includes highland and lowland forests, huge freshwater fjords, hundreds of lakes and ponds, extensive bogs, rock barrens, towering cliffs, and rugged coastline. Visitors can hike through wild, uninhabited mountains or camp by the sea, boat between the 700 metre-high cliffs of a glacier-carved fjord, or enjoy beautiful waterfalls, marine inlets, sea stacks, sandy beaches, and colourful nearby fishing villages.
