Nature Conservancy of Canada
The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) is the largest land conservation charity in Canada, with more than 11,000 km2 of land protected across the country. Its mission is to partner with individual donors, corporations and governments to purchase and protect areas rich in species diversity (see Biodiversity). The charity and its partners achieve this goal by working with local communities to identify land and species in need of protection, and by implementing the best evidence-based conservation science available. The NCC has conserved habitat across Canada for nearly 200 species at risk of extinction.
