In the last two years, many of us have taken to nature like never before. With our favourite indoor places closed and social separation keeping us apart, we explored parks, hiked ravines and discovered new forest trails.
Those same spots are home to thousands of species, hundreds of which are endangered. Of the 500 species at risk in Canada, over 50% of them live near or in cities. Every time a species winks out, it’s a sign that nature is dying.
Wildlands League is committed to preserving our parks, forests, rivers, lakes, and oceans for you and your children. We tackle irresponsible development that threatens nature and wildlife habitats across Ontario. We give voice to Canada’s nature for our children, for the climate and for the planet, with a goal of protecting 30% of Canada’s natural lands and water by 2030.
But we need your help.
With donor support, we’ve already advanced protection of marine life in the Hudson and James Bay, ensured national park protections for the Rouge in Toronto and prevented logging in half a million hectares of intact northern forests.
In Southern Ontario, the Golden Horseshoe is both an extinction hotspot and ground zero for climate impacts. That’s why increasing protection, connection and restoration will be a game changer for the future of our planet.
More than just public parks, we’re talking meadows where songbirds sing, ecological corridors where species can thrive, and protected lands where wildlife can leave paw prints in the snow, all close to where we live. This nature network will protect our ecosystems and make the largest Canadian impact to halt species extinction. More nature is our best buffer against extreme heat and flooding.
A donation to Wildlands League will help safeguard all that you love. Give a gift today at wildlandsleague.org and help us ensure the future you promised your children and grandchildren.
