The Nature Conservancy of Canada has directly protected habitat for more than one-quarter of Canada’s most imperilled plants and animals. For some groups of species, such as reptiles, amphibians, birds and terrestrial mammals, we have protected habitat for more than one-half of at-risk species. Future inventories on our properties are likely to discover additonal species from groups that are more difficult to identify. In additon to securing habitat, NCC also supports the conservation of species at risk through stewardship activities and participation on recovery teams.

Once a property is acquired, we do even more planning — we develop an inventory of the natural features and species on the property, as well as any threats to them. We then write a management plan to set out the steps we are going to take in order to protect the land we have conserved for the long-term.
