Canadian Press: Huge Marine Area Could Soon Be Protected Off Ontario’s Shores

A marine area larger than Austria, home to beluga whales and threatened polar bears off Ontario's northern shores, is a step closer to protected status.

Read the Canadian Press story about exciting progress towards protecting a stretch of southern Hudson Bay and western James Bay as a national marine conservation area. →

“The federal government and nine First Nations said they have cleared a hurdle on the path to protecting a stretch of southern Hudson Bay and western James Bay.”

Take Action

Our communities can’t afford to lose nature. Together, we will halt and reverse biodiversity loss on a planetary scale.

Tell the federal government to halt and reverse biodiversity loss by 2030 and fully recover nature by 2050 with a National Biodiversity Strategy backed by science, Indigenous knowledge, and an all-of-government approach.

You can help by demanding that Canada’s 2030 Biodiversity Strategy is bold and holds governments to account. That includes:

  • Permanent funding for the protection of nature.
  • Support for Indigenous-led conservation.
  • Plans to save critical ecosystems like grasslands, forests, wetlands and ocean.
  • Access to Nature for all.

Tell the federal government your priority is a National Biodiversity Strategy that protects species and communities alike.
