Let's take care of our land of plenty!

The Pays de Cocagne Sustainable Development Group's (PCSDG) mission is to engage citizen participation towards the sustainability of Cocagne watershed communities
Project coordinator

My name is Denise Maillet and I’m from Saint-Thomas-de-Kent NB. My background as a 4th generation lobster fisher inspired my love of the sea and coastal life. It’s been my privilege to work to protect coastal habitats and the wildlife that lives there since 1995, and as a result, I joined the Pays de Cocagne Sustainable development Group in 2009.  For many years we’ve provided educational guided nature programs to thousands at the Irving Eco-centre, la dune de Bouctouche before returning to the onsite work as the coordinator of the South East NB Piping Plover Project under the wings of Bird Studies Canada. We’ve enjoyed welcoming many volunteers who, throughout the years, have joined us on the dunes to contribute to this very important work in protecting our little corner of the world.
