You are restoring nature in your backyard and across Canada!
During this strange time, Nature Canada remembers that it is important to continue to protect and restore the nature and wildlife you love. Our Nature Restoration Fund is an exciting new program that will protect and restore nature in your community and across Canada.
Our world is facing twin environmental crises: mass loss of biodiversity and climate change. Right now, as many as a million species worldwide are heading towards extinction. Over half the planet’s species of fish, birds, reptiles, amphibians and mammals have declined since 1970.
Nature restoration is a concrete strategy to address these two crises. Now more than ever, we all need to take action to protect and restore nature. You really can make a difference for nature in your own backyard. Every small action, every seed planted creates an opportunity for cascading change.
You can help nature thrive near your home. Grow Green @ Home is a virtual fundraising event focused on connecting with nature near your home. You can grow greenery at home to nurture nature in the same way that it is nurturing us during this stressful time.
Take Root and Nurture Nature at Home! By restoring nature near your home you will be strengthening your local ecosystem, helping restore biodiversity to nurture nature, staying close to home, and helping raise money for Nature Canada’s Restoration Fund.
Your Grow Green @ Home donations will be matched dollar for dollar to:
- Restore Nearby Nature: Provide support for community actions that will restore nature, such as helping nature groups do crucial restoration work like planting trees or removing invasive species;
- Protect Wilderness and Wildlife: Advocate for new and expanded protected areas and restoration of threatened habitats that are home to species at risk;
- Connect with Nature: Time spent in nature is good for our mental and physical health. Help us educate and encourage Canadians to reap the incredible health benefits of spending more time in nature.
Ask your friends and family to donate to support your Grow Green @ Home project and their donation will be doubled!
