Nature Conservancy of Canada highlights need for greater conservation in Canada this Environment Week

Our planet is a very different place today than when your grandparents were born. Despite the copious amount of conservation work occurring on a daily basis by citizens, volunteers and environmental groups, biodiversity is continuing to be lost in Canada.

In order to restore the Earth’s “factory settings,” which provide habitat for species and critical ecosystem services to Canadians, organizations such as the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) are constantly finding more ways to conserve and restore our lands and waters for the long term.
