Conservation through collaboration

In the last year, we worked with Canadians from coast to coast to conserve important natural areas for the benefit of the species that live in them and for our children and grandchildren. More than 209,000 Canadians helped us accomplish our successes — including land owners, corporations, governments at all levels, Conservation Volunteers and interns.

A Decade of partnership

2017 also marks the 10-anniversary of the Natural Areas Conservation Program (NACP). This unique partnership helps accelerate the rate of private land conservation and protect important natural habitat in communities across southern Canada.

Since 2007, $277.5 million has been invested in the NACP by Environment and Climate Change Canada. Impressively, this investment has been matched with more than $500 million in contributions of donated land and funding from provincial governments, the private sector and Canadians at large.
