Our Work

A leader in Canadian habitat conservation

A leader in Canadian habitat conservation

We conserve, restore and manage wetlands and grasslands to benefit waterfowl, wildlife and people. Our goal is to ensure abundant wetlands and waterfowl for generations to come while improving Canadian lives. Waterfowl are migratory. That’s why our conservation efforts impact diverse areas across the entire country—including your community.

Impact Areas

Our Approach

Since 1938, we’ve completed more than 9,720 projects and conserved, restored and positively influenced more than 127 million acres of habitat—an area nearly the size of the Yukon. Despite our progress, we still lose up to 80 acres of wetlands every day in Canada. Conserving wetlands and habitats across North America is a challenge. That’s why we bring together a number of approaches to get it done efficiently and effectively.
