Tips to help protect species at risk

Ten simple and concrete things that you can do:

  1. Learn as much as you can about species at risk: explore this web site, join an environmental group, and visit parks, zoos, and botanical gardens that house species at risk
  2. Offer your help to teams working to recover species at risk in your area. They sometimes need a helping hand for specific activities
  3. Install bird feeders, especially in places where there are very few mature trees
  4. Grow native plants in your garden, while making sure to buy them from producers that do not harvest them directly from the wild
  5. Question residential area plans that could destroy the habitats of species at risk
  6. Reduce your contribution to the greenhouse effect: walk, ride a bicycle, or take public transportation to work. Choose an economical car, or carpool
  7. Do not use pesticides around the home
  8. When travelling, remember that it is sometimes illegal to bring back, without a permit, souvenirs made from plants and animals
  9. Reduce, reuse and recycle. Consume less and buy from companies that are involved in protecting the environment
  10. Respect laws and regulations regarding species at risk
