Year founded: 1939
Our mission is to protect and conserve wildlife and habitats in Canada by engaging people and advocating on behalf of nature.
Our strategies are based on sound science and a passion for nature.
Our focus is on effecting change on issues of national significance, including bird conservation, wilderness protection, endangered species and connecting people to nature.
Since 1989, Nature Canada has helped to protect over 63 million acres of precious wildlife habitat in Canada.
Since 1996, Nature Canada has supported more than 150 grassroots bird conservation projects and invested close to $450,000 in on-the-ground projects involving 100 Important Bird Areas.
As the Canadian co-partner in Birdlife International, Nature Canada has helped to develop conservation plans for 136 IBAs across Canada since 1996.
Through the Parks and People program, more than 60,000 children have hiked, walked, camped, or explored the outdoors in national, provincial, or local parks.
We have a long history of accomplishments. We are successful because of our supporters and our partners.
