All across Canada people and organizations inspire us to protect wildlife for our children's future. They commit their time and energy not for the credit but for the results. They simply choose to take up the call to protect, engage and advocate on behalf of nature.
Nature Canada's awards and scholarships honour those who have stepped up to do their part to protect wildlife and our natural world.
