Invest in Our Planet on This Earth Day

On April 22, 1970, environmentalists from all over the world gathered to celebrate the very first earth day. More than 50 year after, we are proud to celebrate with nature lover from all over the world and to draw attention to the problems of nature that will affect Canadians today and for generations to come.

Nature Canada has been at the forefront of the environmental movement in Canada since its inception. For almost 85 year, we have to the protection of more than 110 million acres of parks and wildlife reserves in Canada and the countless species that depend on this habitat. Today, Nature Canada represents a movement of more than 130,000 member and supporter, as well as more than 1,200 nature organizations.

LAST YEAR ALONE, WE”VE HAD A IMPACT:

A roadmap for marine conservation has been announced, including the new Tang.Gebietwan-ḥačxʷiqak-Tsigi Marine Reserve to protect the “Oasis of the deep sea” off Vancouver Island.

There was a massive movement around NatureCOP in Montreal that proved to the prime Minister that Canadians expect leaderhip and lead to a new global framework for biodiversity.

Polluting industries such as clearcutting have been proclaimed that mask their carbon emissions and make false statements about sustainable forestry.

Hundreds of species have been protected, including the caribou of the boreal forest, the red nodule of Eeyou Istchee in James Bay and the Atlantic salmon browened by genetic pollution.

AND THERE IS STILL SO MUCH TO DO…

If Canada hopes to achieve its goal of conserving 30% of the land and oceans by 2030, we must act now and action for important habitats. We can do this by:

  • Restoration and superior protection of wetlands, grasslands, seagrass beds and boreal forests so important to action climate impacts
  • Community climate action, including: tree planting, reforestation and ecosystem restoration
  • Work with hundreds of local groups to establish nature-based climate action initiatives and provide toolkits for superior protection of urban green spaces
  • Supporting Indigenous-led conservation

  • Ask nature lover like you to speak up as we urge decision-maker to do the right thing by defending and restoring nature

On this Earth Day, you can help by joining the movement of Canadians who are raising their voices for nature.
