Benefits of choosing a nature gift

Through the Nature Conservancy of Canada’s (NCC's) Gifts of Canadian Nature charity gift catalogue, you can symbolically adopt a species or landscape. You also choose to send customized holiday e-cards as gifts for every nature lover on your list.

There are many benefits of choosing a gift of nature.

Best. Ancestor. Ever.

Imagine what your great-great-great grandchildren will be saying about you 200 years from now.

Canada is home to some of the world's most important habitats. Among them is the boreal forest. Rivaled in size only by the quickly disappearing Amazon rain forest, the boreal forest is critical to carbon sequestration and to supporting countless plant, animal, insect and bird species that live there. By acting now, the boreal — and other important landscape habitats — will be conserved for future generations. 

Your Gift of Canadian Nature helps NCC carry out its mission of conserving ecologically significant habitats for future generations. Through our network of employees, volunteers, field researchers, biologists and generous partners, NCC works to identify the most at-risk habitats and species and then targets those areas to focus on fundraising. To read more about NCC’s work, check out our annual report.

Most Eco-Friendly Gift Idea

If you're looking for eco-friendly gift ideas, consider a Gift of Canadian Nature. There are several reasons why it's the “greenest” gift you can give:

  1. You are helping save the planet. Your donation goes directly toward nature conservation in Canada.
  2. Reduce your carbon footprint during the holiday season by sending paperless symbolic gifts and e-cards electronically — no manufacturing, packaging or shipping involved!
  3. There’s no waste. Never worry about what happens to your gift at the end of its life cycle when the recipient is ready to toss/trash/recycle it.
  4. You’ll inspire others to help conserve. By setting an example of making charity gifts part of your holiday gift giving, you’ll inspire others to do the same.

This December, start the holiday season off right by giving back to nature. SHOP NCC'S CHARITY GIFT CATALOGUE >
