Conservation.

Stewardship.

Balance.

The ancient, living ties Indigenous communities have with the land,
water and animals
are at the heart of effective conservation strategies.

Ecology

We Stand with Stewardship Warriors

Indigenous communities across Canada are front and center in the fight against environmental degradation, asserting their historical stewardship role over, and responsibility for, all that occurs within their ancestral lands.

When natural areas and ecosystems are lost, degraded and fragmented from human activities – logging, farming, pollution and development – they lose the ability to support biodiversity. Clean air and clean water are threatened. The gifts of wood, natural medicines and wild foods aren’t as available. To help Indigenous communities protect the land and ecosystems that sustain us all, our terrestrial and aquatic ecologists use the tools of conservation and restoration.

Our team also provides technical reviews of these studies to ensure your community’s rights and interests are being considered and protected.
