An Urban BioKit in the Maritimes!

With its long shoreline, many lakes and rivers, broad forests and beautiful parks and gardens, the Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM) boasts an exceptional urban environment.

The HRM Urban BioKit is the perfect tool for getting to know the remarkable biodiversity that defines this region. Rediscover a local park from a different perspective and diagnose its biodiversity. Furthermore, seven circuits, complementary to the BioKit and showcasing the history and unique features of these biodiversity-rich HRM locations are now available.

Many initiatives that promote biodiversity--from community gardens and trail systems to green railways--are supported by the HRM. The HRM Urban BioKit suggests various actions you can also take to strengthen biodiversity.

Check out the HTML version of the Urban BioKit.

Print the HRM Urban BioKit and explore this region! 

And don't forget! You can reuse your BioKit as often as you like simply by printing out the appropriate diagnosis annex.

Marine biodiversity in the Halifax area has greatly improved over the past few years.

This progress was made possible partly through public involvement in programs such as the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup.

So join the movement and participate! Together, we can improve the quality of our environment.
