Aichi Declaration

We have a generational opportunity to protect the biologically diverse areas that we have grown up loving. Canada has adopted a target to conserve at least 17% of terrestrial and inland water areas and 10% of coastal areas by 2020.

Canada’s Environment Minister, the Hon. Katherine McKenna, is spearheading implementation of this target along with her provincial counterparts. But they need to know there is a large constituency behind them.

A declaration has been created to support these targets being met. Many organizations have signed already, but we need more to demonstrate broad support.

Please consider adding your organization to those below by emailing us at engage@naturecanada.ca. Or if you are in Ontario, you could sign online.
