In an era when we face large-scale challenges like biodiversity loss and climate change, the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) is working at an unprecedented scale and urgency to deliver conservation impact. As the largest land conservation organization in the country, NCC is unlocking solutions to support Canada’s targets to conserve 30 per cent of our lands and waters by 2030.

Accelerating conservation means NCC is delivering conservation impact faster and more extensively than ever before. We’re not only putting our energy and ambition into privately protected and conserved areas, we are helping others contribute toward Canada’s 30 x 30 goal and lending our expertise in conserving lands of high natural value.

We can’t do this alone, and we are committed to collaboration, consultation and bringing people together for change.

Helping nature continue to support life

When habitats are integrated and connected, and entire natural systems are conserved, nature can better deliver essential services that support life. By connecting landscapes that provide nature-based solutions, we’re taking care of places that clean our water, purify our air, absorb and store carbon, and support food security. Protecting connected habitat also supports the species that live there, including close to one-third of Canada’s species at risk.
