Environment Canada (EC)
For many of us, Canada’s wildlife provides powerful images that help define the very essence of our country. As noted Canadian conservationist C.H. Clarke said, "were our land to lose its beaver, its caribou, its loons, its wolves... we would have lost our soul."
Although we share our land, water, and air with wildlife, at times it is an uneasy harmony. Changes in the environment, from either human activity or other sources, affect wildlife, and eventually affect us. By practicing wildlife conservation we are protecting our own species.
Environment Canada manages wildlife matters that are the responsibility of the federal government. These include the protection and management of migratory birds, nationally significant habitat and species at risk, as well as work on other wildlife issues of national and international importance. In addition, the department does research in many fields of wildlife biology and provides incentive programs for wildlife and habitat stewardship. READ MORE.
