Support local wildlife on Giving Tuesday, November 28
The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) is inviting nature lovers 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 Newfoundland and Labrador, Giving Tuesday donors can support NCC’s goal to protect 195 acres (79 hectares) of boreal forest bordering on Barachois Pond Provincial Park. The area provides habitat for salmon, bald eagle, bat, fox, caribou, bear, snowshoe hare and pine marten.
“Getting involved in Giving Tuesday is about getting into the true spirit of the holiday season; it can be a time to give back to nature with a donation to NCC’s conservation projects in Newfoundland,” says Megan Lafferty, NCC’s acting Newfoundland and Labrador program director. “On Giving Tuesday people can help NCC protect a west coast habitat rich in wildlife at Barachois Brook, a gift for present and future generations.”
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.
Donations in support of the Nature Conservancy of Canada can be made at natureconservancy.ca or by calling 1-877-231-4400.
