Nova Scotians can support local conservation on Giving Tuesday
The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) is inviting Nova Scotians 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 Nova Scotia, NCC is currently raising funds for several projects, including habitat for endangered mainland moose in Colchester County, old forest in central Cape Breton, globally rare salt marsh plants on the south shore and a 379-acre (153-hectare) urban wilderness park at Williams Lake in Halifax.
“The holiday season can be about conserving rather than consuming; it can be a time to give back to nature with a gift to conservation projects here in Nova Scotia,” says Craig Smith, Nature Conservancy of Canada’s Nova Scotia program director. “On Giving Tuesday people can help NCC protect special and unique habitats in Halifax, central Nova Scotia, Cape Breton, and the south shore — gifts that will benefit wildlife and communities 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.
Donations in support of the Nature Conservancy of Canada can be made at natureconservancy.ca or by calling 1-877-231-4400.
