National and provincial parks, park reserves and tribal parks are home to vital wilderness, roaring rivers, sparkling lakes, wild boreal forests, majestic grasslands and amazing wildlife. They are also a public trust where people can walk, hike, swim, camp, birdwatch and connect with nature.
Our campaigns to protect coastal rainforests, wild rivers, grasslands and boreal forests aim to preserve wilderness ecosystems. Preserving wild lands and keeping ecosystems intact serves to mitigate the impacts of industrial development and climate change.
Imagine your world without killer whales, Blanding's turtles, grizzly bears, spotted owls, caribou or wild salmon. These beloved species and more are integral to the fabric of life, yet so many are at risk of extinction. We campaign for strong laws to protect all threatened, endangered and special concern species.
Carbon dioxide in our atmosphere is now higher than it has been in millions of years. If we carry on at current emission rates, the impacts will be devastating. To avoid the worst of these impacts, coal and fuels such as tar sands and fracked gas need to stay in the ground.
