The work of identifying global and national KBAs across Canada is currently led by regional and thematic coordinators, who are well-immersed in local conservation networks, and experts of the regional flora and fauna. If you’d like to find out more about KBAs in your area, or if there’s a site you would like to propose as a KBA, please reach out to the coordinator in your region.

Manitoba and Atlantic Canada (including Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, PEI, Newfoundland and Labrador) currently do not have a regional coordinator. Contact the KBA Canada Assessment and Outreach Coordinator, Peter Soroye (, to discuss KBAs in these regions.
