Ontario

The Nature Conservancy of Canada's (NCC's) work in Ontario began with the conservation of Cavan Swamp in 1969, a wetland that supports numerous orchid species, muskrat, beaver and waterfowl. Since then, NCC has led the conservation of more than 1,400 projects across Ontario, protecting more than 190,000 acres (77,000 hectares) of this province's most ecologically significant land and water. Today, the Ontario Region continues to work with our partners to conserve Ontario's natural heritage.
