Mission and Goals
CPAWS Wildlands League – your voice for nature. We are a not-for-profit charity that has been working in the public interest to protect large wilderness areas in Ontario since 1968. We are a highly effective charity that brings scientific rigor, credibility and creative solutions forward. As the world experiences unprecedented biodiversity loss, creating protected areas and minimizing the industrial development footprint is a way to address. We connect people with nature.
How Your Contribution Helps
The difference you will make is simple. In the last 14 years alone we have increased protection or enhanced the management of over 15 million hectares in Ontario – averaging just over a million hectares a year.
If you believe in getting results, then invest with Wildlands League, a charity that delivers results. We average 85 cents per hectare.
With your support, we can continue this work, protecting Ontario’s rivers, forests, species and wilderness for generations to come.
Some messages received from our donors during December, 2016:
"Your work on the Ring of Fire is crucial to both the survival of the environment and the indigenous people who help to protect it. The pressure of mining on this area needs all your efforts to ensure a regional EA process and allow indigenous communities to forge allegiances and work on the development of their social capital as well as negotiate for the settlement of their treaty rights, a rightful outcome of reconciliation."- E.P., Ontario
"Thank you for caring about our wild animals and our forests. They must be saved. Walking thru the woods and smelling the fresh scent is so relaxing and invigorating at the same time. Seeing wildlife just makes it so much better." - Anonymous donor
"I am making this donation to do my small part in protecting wild animal habitat, whether grasslands or wilderness or wetlands or rivers and oceans. Thank you for all you are doing to protect our wildlife and preserve our environment for future generations." - H.K., Ontario
