Conservation strategies in the face of Global Change
Over the past eight years, Wildlife Habitat Canada (WHC) — a non-profit national foundation dedicated to habitat conservation — has adopted a landscape approach to the conservation of habitat. In so doing WHC seeks to balance acquisition of critical habitat resource lands with the stewardship of private lands, ensure adequate policies and planning, and encourage public participation and education. Projects for wetland conservation are a priority for funding. We also carry out research and education projects across Canada. Through our projects and our publications, Wildlife Habitat Canada is recognised nationally and internationally as an authority on habitat issues.
