Protect Nature Challenge

Want to do more to help protect nature? Great! Now’s the time.

It’s through everyday actions that we can all come together and make a real difference in protecting nature.

The Government of Canada is committed to protecting 30 percent of Canada’s lands and 30 percent of its oceans by 2030, but we can’t do it alone. We need you, Indigenous Peoples, provinces, territories, private businesses, not-for-profits and others to join in the effort.
