Our Work

In 1968, NCC conserved our first project in Ontario  Cavan Swamp and Bog. This exceptional complex of bogs and other wetlands covers 1,340 hectares (3,400 acres). The site is now the Cavan Swamp Wildlife Area and shelters an abundance of wildlife, including 22 species of orchids.

Today, NCC has helped to protect more than 83,000 hectares (205,000 acres) in Ontario. From the north shore of Lake Superior to Pelee Island in Lake Erie, NCC works to protect the province’s most significant natural landscapes.

We focus our conservation work in priority areas, identified through science-based planning initiatives. These are areas where species and ecosystems face the greatest threats.
