Canadians are more disconnected from nature than ever before. We spend about 90 per cent of our time indoors. More than 82 per cent of us live in an urban setting. There is increasing evidence that being disconnected from nature negatively impacts our health and well-being.
Bring conservation to life
Connecting more Canadians with natural spaces and wildlife will build the foundation for ongoing conservation success. Through this campaign, Canadians will be able to access events that will enrich their experience in nature. This includes joining NCC field staff at Conservation Volunteers days or joining conversations about conservation through the NatureTalks national speakers series, as well as youth engagement, education and skills-building days and employee engagement programs.
Get more Canadians outdoors
More than 80 per cent of Canadians live within 100 kilometres of an NCC property. We invite Canadians to explore some of the greatest examples of our country’s natural areas and connect to nature through NCC’s Nature Destinations program.
Your support of the Landmark Campaign will provide additional opportunities for more Canadians to spend time in nature, so that they may appreciate its value first-hand and be inspired to support its conservation.
