Give to Ontario Nature
Ontario Nature's mission is to protect Ontario's wild species and wild spaces through conservation, education and public engagement.
- Protect and restore nature in Ontario.
- Connect people and communities with nature.
- Advocate on behalf of nature.
- Educate the public about nature and its importance in our lives.
Established in 1931 as the Federation of Ontario Naturalists, Ontario Nature speaks on behalf of wildlife and wild spaces. Our victories include:
- The designation of wilderness areas in Algonquin Provincial Park and a nature reserve at Point Pelee National Park (1934);
- The establishment of Ontario's original Endangered Species Act 1971 and its timely revision in 2007;
- The creation of the Oak Ridges Moraine Conservation Plan in 2001;
- The conservation of more than 2,000 hectares of rare and vulnerable habitat through our nature reserves system;
- Working with other environmental groups, we kept the pressure on the provincial government to protect the northern boreal forest resulting in the introduction of The Far North Act, 2009.
Today, a Nature Network of 140 member groups and more than 30,000 members and supporters sustains Ontario Nature.
Together, we will continue to protect Ontario's diverse natural habitats and wildlife for today and tomorrow.
