Today is Giving Tuesday: Have a Heart for Habitats

Without a place to live, wild species cannot survive. Habitat loss, fragmentation and degradation threaten 80 percent of species at risk and negatively impact all wild plants and animals.

Today, you can help make Ontario a safe haven for wild species.

Double your impact

Every dollar you give will be matched, up to $12,000, by our proud sponsor Ontario Power Generation.

Your support will make an on-the-ground impact to improve threatened habitats in Ontario:

  • $2– Planting pollinator-friendly habitat in natural areas across the province with our Youth Council
  • $5– Improving fish habitat to allow the proper flow of water at the Kinghurst Forest Nature Reserve for species such as spawning bass
  • $10– Planting trees at the Sydenham River Nature Reserve to create habitat for sensitive birds such as the threatened cerulean warbler
  • $20– Recreating habitat for turtles at our Sydenham River Nature Reserve
  • $50– Creating habitat for pollinators like bumblebees, moths and birds at Cawthra Mulock Nature Reserve

By strengthening wild habitats, we’re improving the health of our ecosystems so the species that live in them are able to thrive.
