It’s amazing how time flies when you’re doing something you love. This past October, I was excited to celebrate my 11th year at the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) Reflecting on this time, two things stand out:

  • The generosity and passion/commitment/shared values of our donors; and
  • NCC’s rapid growth. In my time here, I have seen the organization take off in terms of the size and scale of the projects we have accomplished, and the diverse groups we have convened to make these projects happen.

Because of you, our donors, we continue to make great strides for conservation through NCC’s Landmark Campaign. We’ve already raised more than 80 per cent of our $750-million campaign goal. This is an incredible feat for conservation and a clear message from Canadians about the importance of nature in our lives.

In this issue, you’ll read about some of the landmark projects we’ve accomplished with your support, including one of Canada’s largest protected areas — the Tallurutiup Imanga National Marine Conservation Area, far north of the Arctic Circle. As Canadians, we must come together to conserve the country and the wild spaces that mean so much to us. We hope you’ll continue the journey with us as we complete the final 20 per cent of our campaign goal, together.

Yours in nature,

Kyria Knibb-McLuhan
