Turtle webinar intro

Join us for Exclusive Webinars

Attention all Ontario Nature members! We are excited to offer you a series of expert-led live webinars, free of charge and exclusively for Ontario Nature members. We hosted our first webinar in May about Ontario’s turtles with our conservation staff. You can enjoy a recording of the presentation. We are looking forward to our next live webinar on July 7, 2020 at 11am about butterflies in Ontario with James Kamstra.

How Manufactured Uncertainty Affects Wildlife Management

Julee Boan, Ontario Nature’s Boreal Program manager released a research paper that has become among the most downloaded papers from the Wildlife Society Bulletin. Read From climate to caribou: How manufactured uncertainty is affecting wildlife management to examine how misinformation is used in caribou decline denial campaigns, which leads to delays in addressing declines of species populations and inhibits meaningful dialogue about conservation solutions.

Speaking Up Against Provincial Zoning Orders

Together, we demanded transparency and successfully held the government to account. Over 4,000 Ontario Nature supporters like you signed our petition to stop the provincial government from bypassing public participation in determining the future of greenspace in the Greater Golden Horseshoe. After we spoke up the government acted by posting these orders in Bradford West Gwillimbury, Brampton, Toronto, Vaughan, the town of Whitchurch-Stouffville and the city of Markham on the Environmental Registry of Ontario. Thank you for raising your voice! If you haven't already signed, it's not too late!
