Mammal Recovery Project

Canada boasts a diverse range of ecosystems that serve as a haven to almost 200 mammal species. You might even get to encounter sneaky wolverines that roam in frigid forests and blue whales that rule the Arctic seas.

Despite the diversity, some mammals in the country have steadily declined in population because of the impact human intervention has brought upon them. The bison, which used to exist around 1800, were annihilated due to excessive hunting. Add to that a couple of other contributors such as agricultural operations, urbanization, and climate change.

With this dire situation in mind, we have established a program that promotes the rescue of such at-risk creatures via breeding and release, reintroduction, and translocation. Thanks to our partnership with several associations, research groups, and volunteers, we have managed to recover a handful of endangered creatures, including Vancouver Island marmots, Ord’s kangaroo rats, and northern long-eared bats.

If we commit to saving and conserving critically endangered mammal species, we can still make a small but significant difference one at a time. Even just by leaving their habitat undisturbed, you are still making a positive impact on ensuring their long-term survival.

Bird Recovery Project

The bird population in Canada is in grave danger. Approximately 50 of Canada’s bird species are either Threatened or Endangered, based on the country’s Species at Risk Public Registry. Aerial insectivores, grassland birds, and shorebirds are among the identified species that have undergone a major decline in numbers.

Birds are forced to either leave their nesting places due to the emerging pressure from beach tourism or move to a different site to avoid natural predators. Another key contributing factor to the unstoppable decline of the bird populace in the country is climate change. Food becomes rare to find because of the sudden alterations in the environment, leading them to starvation and, ultimately, demise.

Thankfully, a handful of wildlife conservation specialists have partnered with us to combat this alarming bird population decline. Our bird recovery project has been made possible through this collaboration, whether it’s the creation of preservation breeding initiatives, development of cutting-edge reintroduction procedures, or advancement of tools to ascertain bird migration routes, we will do whatever we can to save the remaining at-risk bird species across the country.

Amphibian-Reptile Conservation

The amphibian and reptilian class of wildlife in Canada are among those frequently cited creatures that face the danger of becoming extinct.

Raccoons and some of their predators feed on their eggs, negatively impacting the biome. On top of that, unethical human activities such as poaching have greatly reduced their populace. Even climate change now poses a concerning threat to them. Additionally, commercial and industrial development has fragmented these species’ territory, leaving them prone to inbreeding.

To date, about 40 species of amphibian and reptile are classified as “Threatened” based on the latest report of COSEWIC or the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada. Therefore, an estimated portion of them requires the urgent practical need to survive.

To mitigate their risk of being extirpated, we have formed a campaign that concentrates on preserving and reestablishing the lives of amphibians and reptiles. The key components of this project are preservation breeding, conservation head-starting, on-site intervention, reintroduction, and translocation.

Moreover, we have created partnerships with several research groups to formulate the best approaches to conserving such species. We welcome volunteers to report any sightings of such species in specific locations. Lastly, we conduct educational workshops focusing on road safety, especially in places where roadkill and similar accidents involving these species are often reported.

Domestic Pollination Program

Our domestic pollination project focuses solely on the reproduction of flowering plants. Once the plants have propagated successfully, they, in turn, will be capable of supporting even thousands of additional species.
Roughly 90 percent of all flowers cannot reproduce unless such habitat is populated with domestic pollinators. These hardworking propagators are mainly comprised of various bees and butterflies.
In Canada alone, a lot of bee and butterfly species and a few flowers are currently at risk of extirpation, …
