Your membership protects Ontario's wild species and wild spaces.

Dear ,

With summer just around the corner, we’re busy mobilizing to protect wild species and wild spaces in Ontario. We’re also looking forward to connecting virtually with members like you at our Annual Gathering. Keep reading to see what we have planned and how you can get involved!

A Big Win for Piping Plovers!

Together with our partners, we recently won an important victory when the Court of Appeal upheld the conviction against the Town of South Bruce Peninsula for destroying piping plover habitat. This decision will help ensure that endangered plovers will always find safe haven in Ontario to raise their young. It confirms our collective intent and responsibility – as expressed in the Endangered Species Act – to protect and recover our most vulnerable plants and animals.  



Celebrate 91 Years of Protecting Nature With Us!

Our members are the heart and soul of Ontario Nature, and your safety is always at the forefront of our minds. Given the uncertainty with the pandemic, we have shifted from an in-person to a free virtual Annual General Meeting and Conservation Awards ceremony, on Saturday, June 11th at 9:00 a.m.

Endangered Species, Species at Risk in Ontario

Protect Endangered Species

You can help us take action to save vulnerable, threatened and endangered wildlife in your backyard and across our province. By giving today, you will support environmental advocacy, legal actions, and the protection and restoration of wetlands. Your support also grows a community of people dedicated to increasing our collective knowledge of wildlife across the province.

We are a powerful collective voice for Ontario’s most vulnerable species. And right now, we have an opportunity and a responsibility to protect our at-risk species and the places they call home.
