Local conservation an option on Giving Tuesday
The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) is inviting New Brunswickers to kick off the “giving season” on Giving Tuesday with a donation in support of wildlife and local land conservation. Tuesday, November 28 marks the fifth annual Giving Tuesday, an international event organized by charities as an alternative to the consumerism of Black Friday sales and Cyber Monday online shopping.
Online donations to NCC on November 28 will go to local conservation projects. In New Brunswick, NCC is currently raising funds for several projects, including an old forest that contains the water supply for Riverside Albert, coastal land in Escuminac and the Acadian Peninsula, and key habitat inside a migratory bird sanctuary on the island of Grand Manan.
“The holiday season can be about more than shopping; it can be a time to give back to nature with a gift to NCC’s conservation projects in New Brunswick,” says Paula Noel, NCC’s New Brunswick program director. “On Giving Tuesday, people can help NCC protect special areas like our projects on Grand Manan, the Acadian Peninsula and in Riverside-Albert. A gift of conservation will benefit wildlife and New Brunswickers for generations to come.”
The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) is the nation’s leading not-for-profit, private land conservation organization, working to protect our most important natural areas and the species they sustain. Since 1962, NCC and its partners have helped to protect more than 1.1 million hectares (2.8 million acres), coast to coast
