Canadian Government Donates Land To Protect Endangered Newfoundland Pony


The Newfoundland pony is a small, sturdy horse that’s become a bit of a rarity. It originally roamed the Canadian island of Newfoundland in the thousands, but in recent years, its population has plummeted below 400. The local government is now looking to stabilize those numbers through a new park where the ponies can safely graze and, hopefully, spawn new generations.

The province of Newfoundland and Labrador announced the conservation plan late last week. It’ll grant a 50-year lease on a parcel of roughly 25 acres to the Newfoundland Pony Society, a registered charity that protects the animals. Under the NPS’s supervision, this land will become the Newfoundland Pony Heritage Park.
