SAVING NETLEY MARSH

HOW CAN WE SAVE NETLEY MARSH?
 

WHY ARE MARSHES SO IMPORTANT

Marshes are much more than habitat for fish, wildlife and waterfowl.

Learn why our wetlands are critical for you and the health of Lake Winnipeg

WHAT IS THE RESTORATION PILOT PROJECT?

The Netley-Libau Marsh has been deteriorating for a number of reasons, to the point it is no longer a healthy functioning marsh.

We can still save the marsh, but the time to act is NOW!

WORKING TOGETHER

A Very Similar Project - being done in Louisiana
 

Many Manitoban families have enjoyed and benefited from the Netley-Libau marsh in the past.

It is our duty to preserve it for future generations, but also for the multiple benefits

that a thriving marsh can contribute to the health of Lake Winnipeg and our shared waters.

A Successful Project of

Marsh Restoration at the

Paul J Rainey Wildlife Sanctuary

The Amphibex 400

 

The Amphibex 400 has been used for the provincial ice breaking program, it was originally meant to be a dredger.

 

Amphibex is a Canadian company located in Quebec. These versatile dredgers are also friendly to the environment: they are equipped with a residential silencer that reduces noise emissions and disturbances. Their hydraulic system also uses biodegradable vegetable oil that is safe for the environment

 

These machines have been used in Manitoba mainly for the ice breaking program.
