Join the most ambitious campaign in our history:

To conserve more land, connect more Canadians to nature

and inspire the next generation of conservation leaders


Defined by

nature

Canada is like no other place on Earth. That is

why the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC),

along with our passionate donors, has spent

more than 55 years protecting our unique

natural spaces and the life they sustain.

I’ve been volunteering for the Nature

Conservancy of Canada for 20 years

now, and the more I learn and see

about its work, the more enthused

I become.

My parents instilled in me

a respect and admiration for nature.

Growing up, recreation time equalled

outdoors time, often in the nearby

ravines of Toronto. I’ve been passionate

about nature ever since.

My wife, Karen, and I are proud to support NCC’s Landmark

Campaign. There is no better nature conservation charity for

showing results for dollars. Here are three reasons why we give:

IT’S A CANADIAN CAUSE

NCC was created by Canadians and invests your dollars in

Canadian projects that are chosen and managed by Canadians.

Our natural areas have global importance, and this is our gift

to the world.

OUR DOLLARS ARE SPENT WITH IMPACT

NCC protects lands that provide habitat for more than 200

different species at risk. Charity Intelligence and MoneySense

repeatedly rank NCC as one of the top environmental charities

for efficient use of donor dollars.

THE GIFT OF CONSERVATION IS PERMANENT

We support many worthy charities, but NCC is the only one

we know where our donation will make such a lasting impact.

Decades from now, NCC donors and staff will be stewarding

the land we protect today.

Volunteers who recognized that important habitats were

disappearing created NCC in the 1960s. Now, it is the potent

force of volunteers, donors and staff who make us successful.

There is much more land to protect. Thank you for being

a fellow donor and supporter and for helping us complete our

$750-million campaign.

The Nature Conservancy of Canada invites you to join the

Landmark Campaign to conserve more land faster, connect

more Canadians to nature and inspire the next generation

of conservation leaders

MIKE FORD

BY Leslie Garrett, journalist and writer

4 FALL 2018 natureconservancy.ca


On a small lake in central Ontario on a summer

day already eliciting heat alerts at 8 a.m., John Lounds

lifts a canoe from the roof of his dark grey car and slips

it into the water with the help of a friend. A family of

mallards remains undistracted near the cattails. Lounds often turns to

his canoe to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, and to reflect on

his connections to nature.

I ask Lounds about his more adventurous canoe trips, and his gaze

fixes on something in the distance. His eyes light up as he recalls previous

voyages exploring Canada’s waterways. There was that backcountry

canoe trip along the Ashuapmushuan River in Quebec, whose name

in Innu means “place where one lies in wait for moose.” It was on

a different trip, though, along the Missinaibi River in northern Ontario,

where his group spotted two moose. And, he adds, his voice reverent,

“Paddling into the wind with the sun behind us, we had the treat of

getting very close to a wolf onshore.”

natureconservancy.ca

FALL 2018 5


It’s clear that Canada’s wild places mean

something to Lounds; something more than

pretty scenery. “It’s who we are,” he says. “It’s

woven into the fabric of our nation. Indigenous

Peoples in Canada, who cared for this land

long before European settlers arrived, are

deeply connected to nature. They believe the

natural world is sacred. We have much to learn.”

Lounds dips his paddle into the glassy

water and propels the canoe forward. When

not navigating the water in a canoe, Lounds

is at the helm of the Nature Conservancy of

Canada (NCC), an organization that conserves

what symbolizes Canada the world over: our

natural places and wildlife. “We have the

opportunity, perhaps more than any other

nation on the planet, to make conservation

count,” he reflects.

Although today’s paddle is a short one,

there will be more adventurous canoe trips

for Lounds. For now, looming large on his

agenda is NCC’s most ambitious undertaking

to date. Lounds and his colleagues are

inviting Canadians to join the Landmark

Campaign, with its goals to conserve more

land faster, connect more Canadians to

nature and inspire the next generation

of conservation leaders.

We have the opportunity, perhaps

more than any other nation on the

planet, to make conservation count.

JOHN LOUNDS, PRESIDENT AND CEO, NATURE CONSERVANCY OF CANADA

Conserving land faster

These are staggering goals: the Landmark

Campaign aims to raise $750 million and conserve

3.2 million acres (1.3 million hectares).

This will help secure at least 500 new land

conservation projects and 10 large-scale

signature projects (see p. 8).

Lounds leads from the conviction that

thinking big is the first step toward achieving

big results. Ask him if he’s daunted by this

latest shoot-for-the-moon campaign, and he

responds with characteristically quiet conviction

about what NCC can achieve, but only

with the help of its supporters.

“It’s our supporters who encouraged us

to set the most ambitious goals in our history.

Their passion for nature — their belief in

what we do — gives us confidence that we

can reach those goals,” reflects Lounds.

He points to the over $540 million already

raised since the start of the campaign. The

Landmark Campaign will effectively double

the amount of land protected in NCC’s 56-

year history. And, he notes, urgency drives

the mission. “Canada’s natural landscapes

are still under threat from habitat loss

and fragmentation, invasive species and,

of course, climate change,” he says.

“We may never get a better chance to

conserve our country’s natural legacy.”

NCC is building upon decades of sciencebased

conservation planning, ensuring it is

well-positioned to move swiftly when opportunities

arise. Take, for instance, the recent

Birch River project in northeast Alberta.

NCC partnered with the Tallcree Tribal Government,

provincial and federal governments,

Syncrude and The Schad Foundation to remove

the timber quotas on 3,300 km 2 of boreal

forest so this area can be designated a provincial

park. When added to Wood Buffalo

National Park and other contiguous conserved

areas, this is now the largest stretch of protected

boreal forest on the planet.

Landmark achievements such as the Birch

River project have been possible because of

NCC’s unique ability to create partnerships

with other groups. Creating partnerships across

the spectrum has long been a priority for

Lounds. “It’s not about us,” he says. “We’re in

“Nature fuels my spirit and helps make me feel

connected. Having wild spaces for people to enjoy

in their own way, hiking, swimming, relaxing and

taking in the views, helps to fuel their spirit. What

would we be left with if we didn’t have these spaces?

This is why we support NCC. Through our company

Basic Spirit, Bonnie and I support NCC in their efforts

to keep wild spaces for now and into the future.”

JIM PRENTICE WILDLIFE

CORRIDOR

ALBERTA

Create and connect a 3,950-acre (1,600-

hectare) corridor in the Crowsnest Pass.

Once completed, it will allow critical wildlife

movement between numerous protected

areas along the Eastern Slopes of the Rockies

in Canada and the United States. NCC is

working to complete the corridor to recognize

the public service of the late Honourable Jim

Prentice, former Premier of Alberta, and to

create a legacy that honours his passion for

conservation across Canada.

CANADA’S LARGEST

PROTECTED FOREST

ALBERTA

Purchase and extinguish a significant timber

permit to secure the protection of more than

822,860 acres (333,000 hectares) adjacent

to Wood Buffalo National Park. Conserve

habitat for threatened wood bison and

woodland caribou and, when combined with

existing nearby protected spaces, establish

the largest contiguous area of protected

boreal forest in the world.

ENDANGERED GRASSLANDS

SASKATCHEWAN AND

MANITOBA

Help NCC acquire 70,000 acres (28,000

hectares) of grasslands — among the most

endangered ecosystems on the planet — and

ensure at least another 200,000 acres (81,000

hectares) on public lands are protected for

nature and sustainable ranching.

THE LAST GREAT LAKES

WILDERNESS

ONTARIO

Conserve more than 15,000 acres (6,300

CANADA’S HOT SPOT FOR

RARE SPECIES

ONTARIO

Enable the acquisition and restoration of

habitats in three high-priority areas along

the shores of Lake Erie, protecting species

at risk and their habitats and improving

the health of the Lake Erie watershed. The

northern shore of Lake Erie is an oasis of

biodiversity in the agricultural and industrial

heartland of Ontario.

KENAUK WILDLIFE CORRIDOR

QUEBEC

Build on NCC’s existing 14,500-acre (5,900-

hectare) Kenauk property by protecting the

region’s forests, wetlands and lakes. This is a

critical strategy in maintaining a major wildlife

corridor that stretches north from the Ottawa

River to the Laurentian Mountains.

HALIFAX WILDERNESS PARK

NOVA SCOTIA

Create a one-of-a-kind, 379-acre (153-

hectare) wilderness park just minutes from

downtown Halifax. NCC’s vision for the

Halifax Wilderness Park is to protect a place

for both wildlife and people. This $8-million

project is currently NCC’s largest fundraising

campaign in Atlantic Canada and will

conserve rare Jack pine and broom crowberry

barrens. This unique partnership project

between NCC, the Halifax Regional Municipality

and the Shaw Group will #KeepHalifaxWild

even as the city grows and evolves.

TALLURUTIUP IMANGA

NUNAVUT

Support the establishment of a National

Marine Conservation Area by securing more

than 2.1 million acres (860,000 hectares) of

offshore exploratory permits and releasing

them back to the Government of Canada.

Long known for its richness of marine

mammals and birds, this conservation area

will protect habitat for iconic Arctic species,

including polar bear, narwhal, beluga

whale and walrus.

WHY WE SUPPORT NCC

10 FALL 2018


More than 80 per cent of Canadians live within

100 kilometres of an NCC property. A key to

inspiring Canadians to protect wild spaces is

meeting them in the places they love.

Students on a field trip to Pasqua Lake, Saskatchewan, as part of the Learning the Land program. The

program is a partnership between NCC and Treaty 4 Education Alliance, which teaches conservation by

merging western science and traditional Indigenous knowledge. Funding for the program is provided

by Environment and Climate Change Canada’s Aboriginal Fund for Species at Risk, the Province of

Saskatchewan, Saskpower and TD Friends of the Environment.

the business of creating conditions for nature

to thrive. It’s about all that work.”

Crucial to these partnerships, of course,

are NCC’s donors. “Often what we’re doing is

facilitating other people’s dreams,” he says.

“When someone gives a dollar to the Nature

Conservancy of Canada, that’s a precious

decision they have made.” The Landmark

Campaign is built upon the desire of donors

to “leave a landmark,” something that will

continue to connect Canadians to the natural

world and inspire new generations.

“This campaign is an unparalleled opportunity

to make an impact — to protect and care for

Canada’s lands and waters and all the species

they sustain, including people,” says Lounds.

Connecting more

Canadians to nature

But support of the Landmark Campaign will

do more. It will provide additional opportunities

for Canadians to get outdoors and appreciate

nature first-hand, so that they may be

inspired to protect it.

Lounds and his team are concerned that

Canadians are more disconnected from nature

than ever before. We spend about 90 per cent

of our time indoors. More than 82 per cent

of us live in an urban setting. There is increasing

evidence that being disconnected from

nature negatively impacts our health and

well-being.

Connecting more Canadians with natural

spaces and wildlife will build the foundation

for ongoing conservation success.

Through this campaign, Canadians will be

able to access events that will enrich their experience

in nature. This includes joining NCC

field staff at Conservation Volunteers days

or joining conversations about conservation

through the NatureTalks national speakers’

series, as well as youth engagement, education

and skills-building days and employee

engagement programs.

Local engagement is critical to NCC’s work.

Just as Lounds himself recharges by taking to

rivers and lakes in a canoe, a key part of inspiring

Canadians to protect wild spaces is

meeting them in the places they love. Indeed,

more than 80 per cent of Canadians live within

100 kilometres of an NCC property.

in summer 2017, invites people of all ages to

BUILDING A SUSTAINABLE

WORLD, TOGETHER

ANDREA BARRACK

VICE PRESIDENT OF GLOBAL CORPORATE

CITIZENSHIP, TD BANK GROUP

“At TD, we believe that we have an important

role to play in building a more inclusive

and sustainable tomorrow. This requires

collaboration to help drive change in our

communities and abroad, by bringing

together individuals and organizations with

different skills and perspectives to spark

innovative, holistic solutions.

Through our corporate citizenship platform,

The Ready Commitment, TD aspires to link

business, philanthropy, and human capital

to elevate the quality of the environment so

that people and economies can thrive.

TD and NCC have worked together in a number

of ways over the years, and in the process

we have created mutually beneficial results.

Through the TD Forests program, we have

helped protect over 60,000 acres (24,280

hectares) of forest habitat in North America.

Together, we also measured the benefits

natural spaces provide to society. This year

we are thrilled to continue TD’s support of

the NatureTalks speakers series.

Our collaborations have led to solutions we

feel will help address many of the environmental

challenges we face today and in the

years to come. That shared impact is one of

the many reasons we are proud to support

NCC’s Landmark Campaign.”

areas — some of Canada’s best examples of

these remaining spaces. “It’s often when

people see a potential change in a natural area

that they’ve grown to love that they get working

to make sure it’s conserved,” says Lounds.

Lounds believes that by connecting Canadians

to conserved places, NCC creates

champions for nature. Supporters of the

Landmark Campaign will provide additional

opportunities for more Canadians to spend

time in nature, so that they may appreciate

its value first-hand and be inspired to support

its conservation.

Inspiring the next

generation of

conservation leaders

Another goal of the Landmark Campaign is

to inspire future generations to build on our

legacy and lead more conservation efforts

in communities across the country. The campaign

aims to invest in the next generation

of conservation professionals, including more

than doubling the size of its Conservation

Internship Program.

“Protecting Canada’s natural spaces and

wildlife needs the collective effort of all of

us — young and old,” notes Lounds.

It’s a mission he urges the young people

recruited into NCC’s ranks to take to heart,

including the close to 75 interns hired this

summer (with 100 slated to be hired next

year). Conservation Intern Megan McGlynn

is the daughter of ranchers near Pincher

Creek, Alberta. She’s working to monitor the

use of land purchased by NCC. She has seen

first-hand how conversations can lead to collaborations

that literally change the landscape.

“Being a local rancher, I really appreciate how

NCC works so closely with other local ranchers

and helps maintain working landscapes,”

she says. “I don’t think people know what

a good land steward NCC is.”

Cassia Foley is a summer conservation planning

intern with plans to study climate change

as a master’s student at McGill University. She

traces her love of the natural world to her childhood

home beside a lake, and the changes she

watched as land was swallowed up to development.

She appreciates the speed at which NCC

responds to threats. “The work here is very

fast and effective and actually conserving land.

NCC takes the science of what we know is

happening and does something about it.”

The energy, commitment and skill sets

of NCC’s younger recruits inspire Lounds.

“Looking at how many young people work at

the Nature Conservancy of Canada and how

terrific they are; enthusiastic, smart, capable.

It just makes me feel good about the future,

having those young folks ready to lead the

charge.” Supporting the campaign will support

the leaders of tomorrow. NCC’s donors and

supporters can help ignite the passion of

Canada’s youth in carrying on NCC’s work.

Back at the lake, Lounds allows himself

the occasional rest or gentle paddle on this

sweltering day. Yes, the Landmark Campaign

— the largest single private investment ever

in Canadian conservation — is an ambitious

undertaking. “It’s up to all of us,” says Lounds.

“At the Nature Conservancy of Canada, we’re

ready to do our part, but we need the support

of Canadians from coast to coast to make our

goals a reality.”

Lounds turns his bow across the lake,

a gentle wind at his back propelling him forward.

Dipping his paddle into the water, he’s reminded

of one of his favourite aphorisms: “If

you want to travel fast, go alone. If you want

to travel far, go together.” It’s a saying that

Lounds has turned to several times over the

years, and it seems just as fitting today, as he

heads into the next phase of NCC’s journey.1

Every bit

counts

Every donation, big or small, counts toward helping the

Nature Conservancy of Canada achieve the protection

of more than 500 new land conservation projects across

Canada through its Landmark Campaign

The Nature Conservancy of Canada’s (NCC’s) Landmark Campaign

offers Canadians an unparalleled opportunity to protect and care for our country’s

lands and waters, and the species they sustain. The Landmark Campaign will

double the amount of land and water protected by NCC, helping to restore rare

habitats, support species at risk and improve the quality of our air and water.

Mark Rittinger, vice-president of marketing and development at NCC,

believes every bit counts toward helping NCC achieve the protection of more

than 500 new land conservation projects across Canada. “I’ve come to have a

greater feeling of responsibility to our future, and that this feeling of responsibility

perhaps comes with being Canadian,” says Rittinger. “We need to do more, faster.

And we can’t do it without our donors and supporters. NCC offers a number of

options for Canadians everywhere to contribute to our campaign — whether

through a monthly gift, an annual contribution or a gift in their Will.”

Monthly giving

It’s hard to imagine running out of something

that seems as boundless as nature. But if

we don’t act today to protect our important

natural landscapes, they might not be here

for our children and grandchildren. Your

monthly gift can help us ensure that the

special natural places you enjoy with your

family today will still be here tomorrow.

“We have an obligation to this tiny blue

(and green!) planet to respect its natural

elements and to learn how to co-exist with

nature. Not in a distributive fashion, where

there are winners and losers, but in an integrated

fashion, where the goal is a mutually

beneficial outcome,” says Rittinger.

Monthly giving is easy, flexible and convenient.

When you spread your donation out

during the year, we can invest in long-term

projects to protect and restore wildlife habitat,

every single day. You choose the amount

you would like to automatically donate each

month via credit card or bank direct deposit,

and receive one consolidated tax receipt per

year. And you can change, increase or stop

your donation at any time. Call or email us

today to sign up to be a monthly donor.

Legacy gifts

Imagine a way to ensure that the values and

passions you hold strong today will continue

to have an influence tomorrow. If you are

passionate about nature, you can include it

in your charitable, estate and financial plans.

The gift you plan today is an investment

that will yield the highest returns for nature

and for future generations.

“Canadians are fortunate to be stewards

of such an immense portion of the planet’s

natural spaces, and the impact that these

spaces have not only on our country, but on

the globe, are immense,” explains Rittinger.

There are several ways to leave a meaningful

gift to conservation: you can leave a gift

in your Will, make a gift of publicly traded

securities or of RRSP/RRIF, a gift of life insurance

or a gift of land.

Legacy gifts are important to NCC’s longterm

conservation planning. They also ensure

NCC can continue to manage all existing

lands under our care. We are happy to talk

with you and your advisors to ensure your

planned gift fits your charitable intent and

your personal and financial objectives. By

leaving a legacy gift to NCC, you will make an

impact as lasting and enduring as the lands

we love and protect.

Leaders in Conservation

Much of NCC’s work is in southern Canada,

where nature is under the greatest threat

and where most Canadians live. These spaces

are key to our quality of life. With habitat

loss and fragmentation, invasive species and

climate change threatening the existence of

these natural spaces, we need to do more to

protect them — and fast.

The Leaders in Conservation program

provides unique opportunities and benefits to

individuals who make an annual contribution

of $1,000 or more in support of NCC's work.

You can help lead our efforts to conserve

Canada’s great places.

Since our Leaders provide undesignated

gifts, we’re able to use these funds where

they are needed most urgently.

If you’re interested in making a donation

of $1,000 or more to NCC and becoming a

Leader in Conservation, call or donate today.1

MAKING THE LARGEST IMPACT

NCC staff are here to help you decide the best ways you can contribute to

the Landmark Campaign. Whether you choose to give monthly, leave

a legacy or join our growing group of Leaders in Conservation, we

will ensure your donation will have the largest impact on nature

now and that our shared vision of a future natural Canada will be fulfilled.
