We're a nation connected to and by nature.

It sustains us, captivates us and is an important part of our identity. Yet, threats like climate change, pollution and habitat loss are affecting the wildlife and places we value deeply and depend upon.

So we urge you to deepen your connection to nature and make it count. Because together, we can have an even bigger impact on the health of nature in Canada for years to come.

What you can do for nature today

The Carolinian Zone in Southern Ontario is a hotspot for biodiversity, with more species of rare plants and animals than anywhere else in Canada, including the Blanding’s turtle, southern flying squirrel, rusty-patched bumble bee and monarch butterfly. Wildlife are declining as habitats are lost and fragmented.

You can help restore lost habitats and protect the region’s incredible diversity of wildlife by gradually transforming your green spaces into garden habitats with In the Zone, a new native gardening program by WWF-Canada and Carolinian Canada. Sign up to receive free garden guides and record your contribution to biodiversity with the In the Zone Tracker, an online citizen science tool.
