Thank You for Standing With Us in 2021

Your incredible support allowed us to protect and restore more threatened habitat, advocate for stronger environmental protections, and inspire more youth to take action in their communities. We hope you had a chance to read our end of year blog post to celebrate our shared wins for nature. We want to show our gratitude through a report of what you made possible through your support.

Blanding's turtle, Threatened Species At Risk in Ontario

The Government of Ontario Has Failed Species at Risk

The November 2021 report of the Auditor General of Ontario, Protecting and Recovering Species at Risk, lays bare the provincial government’s utter failure to do what is needed to improve the outlook for Ontario’s most vulnerable plants and animals. We need your help to demand better of our political leaders and representatives. Let them know you want an action plan to recover species at risk developed and implemented, with clear commitments to address the government’s inexcusable record to date. Please join more than 2,000 others and sign our Action Alert and spread the word by sharing it widely among your networks.
