Core Programs and Initiatives:
Protected Areas Campaigns - Canada made a promise to protect 25% of land and oceans by 2025, and 30% by 2030. Nature Canada builds momentum across the country to protect nature, the plants and animals that call it home, and respect Indigenous rights.
NatureHood - An experiential program that connects people of all ages, especially young people, to nature right where they live — through events, educational and stewardship activities, and wildlife observation! We are focused on creating equitable access to nature, addressing barriers experienced by racialized communities, and increasing sustainable opportunities for underrepresented groups.
Save Bird Lives - We celebrate and protect birds through a variety of programs that engage communities in bird-friendly practices that benefit whole ecosystems including Bird City Campaign, World Migratory Bird Day, Save our Swallows, and Cree Nation Bird Conservation.
Women for Nature - A collaborative network of voices of Canadian women with vision – women of influence who demonstrate their passion for nature, through mentorship and leadership opportunities, passing their values onward to drive change.
Nature-Based Climate Solutions - We are working to advance NBCS from all levels of government through policy work and by engaging a vast network of nature groups across the country on grassroots actions. It's a unique opportunity to mobilize new constituencies as part of the broader movement addressing the twin crises of climate change and biodiversity loss.
Nature Restoration - Restoration has the potential to positively influence degraded landscapes, improving conditions for biodiversity and carbon sequestration. As a scalable process, restoration provides opportunities for large scale organizing and grassroots engagement by empowering individuals to make a difference in communities across Canada.
