Wild Futures Project

$1 donated protects $11 worth of land!

$1 donated protects $8.65 of nature services!


In 2022-2023, EBC's goal will be securing 4,868 acres, spanning 42 properties. These precious properties are homes to many species at risk (SAR) in Ontario. Each of these properties could become a Nature Reserve if we meet the fundraising challenge. You can make a tremendous contribution by supporting these proposed acquisitions. Your donation makes a huge contribution toward getting each nature reserve under our wing and SAFE from development pressures. To learn more about the Wild Futures Project Click Here!
