Become an Advocate

More than 18,000 people are raising their voices as advocates for the protection of Ontario’s wild species and wild spaces – people who are willing to take that extra step by communicating directly with the government and other decision-makers about the need to protect nature. Will you join them?

As an Advocate for Nature, you will receive emails about important conservation issues and easy ways you can take action when your help is urgently needed. Each action alert will include an issue summary and a recommended action.

Protected Places Declaration

Sign the declaration to show you care about protected places and ask the governments of Ontario and Canada to meet the commitment to protect at least 17 percent of lands and inland waters by 2020.

Caribou Can’t Survive Without a Place to Live

With your help, we can demonstrate that Ontarians care deeply about species at risk, and expect industry and government to take meaningful steps to secure a brighter future for caribou. Sign our Action Alert to the Minister of Environment and Climate Change. Their decisions will have a decisive impact on the survival and recovery of boreal caribou in this region.

Impact

You can make an enormous difference and it’s free! Ontario Nature’s advocates helped with campaigns that led to a conservation plan for the Oak Ridges Moraine, an 80 percent reduction in neonicotinoid pesticides, wetland and woodlot protection, establishment of 2.4 million hectares of new protected areas, and much more.
