200 km of shoreline to paddle dispersed over six paddling routes.
73 km² of forested land have been damaged by moose browsing. 82% of the vegetation in mixed hardwood forests has since been consumed by the moose population in Terra Nova.
- Parks Canada has decided that the primary solution to reduce the population is through moose harvesting
- Tree planting and seeding will increase vegetation and give forest a head start on regeneration
- Site preparation and weed control removes competing vegetation and plants to further aid the growth of newly planted trees
