Torngat Mountains Clean-Up

The beauty of the land and scenery of the Torngat Mountains National Park was the focus of a recent clean-up effort.

A clean-up cruise was carried out in the park last month.

The Superintendant of the Torngat Mountains National Park, Judy Rowell, The Nunatsiavut Government’s Environmental Enforcement Officer, Ernie Ford and the President of the Rising Youth Council, Donna Dicker, were among the participants.

They say the effort was carried out by the Torngat Mountains National Park Co-management Board in partnership with the Nunatsiavut Government and Cruise North Expeditions.

A group of volunteers, including youth from Nunatsiavut and Nunavik, traveled from the tip of Labrador and down the coast of the park picking up garbage and debris.

They all had the privilege of travelling on Cruise North’s ship: the Lyubov Orlova.
