Natural Areas Conservation Program: First annual progress report
September 11, 2014 to March 31, 2019
In 2014 the Government of Canada committed an additional $100 million to extend the Natural Areas Conservation Program.
In July 2015, the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) submitted the first annual progress report for this new phase of the program to the Government of Canada. This progress report highlights the activities and accomplishments achieved during the first year of the funding agreement (September 2014–May 2015).
NCC is pleased to report excellent progress under the Program, and as of March 31, 2015 has successfully protected an additional 11,340 acres (4,600 hectares) of ecologically significant lands that provide habitat for 195 COSEWIC-assessed species at risk.
As of November 30, 2015 the Natural Areas Conservation Program has conserved over 988,420 acres (400,000 hectares) since its launch in 2007.
