Reaching a milestone, the Nature Conservancy of Canada looks ahead

Tuesday, September 5, 2017

On Aug. 30, the Nature Conservancy of Canada marked exactly 20,000 days of conservation. Originally launched by a small band of determined naturalists, and now a national organization with reach and supporters across the country, NCC and its partners and supporters have helped to protect more than 1.1 million hectares of some of the most important natural habitats in Canada. The NCC notes challenges today: nature is still losing ground; wildlife continues to be added to our list of endangered species and continuing to witness the loss and fragmentation of important habitats; our natural spaces are also facing new threats, such as invasive species and climate change, unknown 20,000 days ago.
