Ontario

The Nature Conservancy of Canada's first project in Ontario was the conservation of Cavan Swamp in 1969 — a type of wetland supporting numerous orchid species, muskrat, beaver and waterfowl. NCC has led the conservation of more than 1,400 projects across Ontario, protecting more than 178,000 acres (72,034 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.
