As part of our Nature Legacy, the world’s greatest conservation opportunity, Canada is committed to protecting our most precious resource. At the Nature Summit in Montreal, we kicked off a global year-long push to chart an ambitious, shared path toward protecting “Our Nature.” Working with our indigenous communities and stakeholders, we will double the area of land and water protected within Canada by 2020. Because conservation is a global challenge, we are also working with other nations and researching protection’s economic opportunities.
Check out how protecting our nature is “in our nature” in this video from Environment and Climate Change Canada.
