Watch A Force for Nature to experience the toll development is taking on natural habitat and the animals and plants that depend on these lands. Hear insight from naturalists and environmental scientists about why the work NCC does is so critical and why it's important to act now to protect what's left of our natural heritage.
Natural lands, clean air and water are vital to Canada's ecological integrity and our national identity. Conserving these areas contributes to the health and well-being of all Canadians.
Canada's natural history is disappearing, but with A Force for Nature, Canadians can learn how to save the best of what is left.
