Conservation funding success stories
Canadians have implemented thousands of conservation projects with the support of funding from the Government of Canada. Here is a sampling of some successful projects.
The Aboriginal Fund for Species at Risk supports and strengthens the capacity of Indigenous peoples to participate in the implementation of the Species at Risk Act. The act recognizes the important role of Indigenous peoples in wildlife conservation. It also recognizes the need to consider Aboriginal Traditional Knowledge in assessing species, protecting them and helping them recover.
