More Than 1 Million Acres of Nature Conserved and Restored in Ontario

Ontario’s Natural Infrastructure

The need for wetland conservation to support a healthy and prosperous Ontario has never been greater.

We are the national leader in wetland conservation. Since 1974, we’ve worked in Ontario to conserve 1 million acres of wetlands and adjacent habitat such as grassland, forest or other upland habitats. Wetlands are hard-working ecosystems that deliver cleaner water, capture carbon and nutrients, and preserve and increase habitats for waterfowl and other wildlife including endangered species.

All this, while providing natural climate buffers for Ontario communities. Wetlands are a natural solution.
