LOSS OF BIODIVERSITY

LOSS OF BIODIVERSITY

Biodiversity is being destroyed in front of our very eyes. The level of loss has forced us into the sixth mass extinction. 1 million species already face extinction and many are disappearing 1,000 to 10,000 times their natural extinction rate. Biodiversity can’t keep up with our demands and is fading away.

EXTINCTION IS FOREVER

EXTINCTION IS FOREVER

Since 1970, we have lost 60% of our mammals, birds, fish and reptiles, and two-thirds of our invertebrate friends like bugs and bees. When compared to the human population, that’s the equivalent of emptying North America, South America, Africa, Europe, China and Oceania.

WE MUST ACT NOW

WE MUST ACT NOW

There’s no second chance with extinction. We need to act now. From planting bee-friendly gardens and curbing your plastic use to organizing community conservation activities and voting in local, municipal and federal elections, we can all make a difference. Even small acts can have a ripple effect.

About Us

A safety net for our children’s children

The National Environmental Treasure (NET) is a people’s trust fund devoted to the exclusive funding of Canadian environmental organizations, to increase their core capacity in critical areas such as environmental literacy, infrastructure support, public communications, and operational sustainability. We are particularly interested in supporting under-funded smaller and medium-sized organizations, working in local communities and regions. Our goal is to build a $30 million-dollar public charitable foundation for the environment — the equivalent of every Canadian donating a “loonie” for their environment.

Our Education Program

Our national education program is working to raise awareness of biodiversity loss, the need for increasing protected areas in Canada and solutions for this unprecedented issue. If we live in harmony with biodiversity and work with nature’s systems, species will thrive, including humans.

Canada made a global commitment to protect 17% of our land and freshwater by 2020. Unfortunately, we have yet to achieve that goal. But we can do better. Let’s protect 25% of our land and oceans by 2025 and 30% by 2030, as our federal government has pledged.
