WCS envisions a world where wildlife thrives in healthy lands and seas, valued by societies that embrace and benefit from the diversity and integrity of life on Earth.
WCS saves wildlife and wild places worldwide through science, conservation action, education, and inspiring people to value nature.
WCS Canada focuses on saving the best of the wild -- rich landscapes where wildlife conservation can be achieved at a large scale -- because others don’t. Governments and industry give too little attention to the effect of cumulative impacts of development and climate change on ecosystems. WCS is drawing attention to the need to secure a natural legacy for future generations. We do field research on wildlife and share our results, and we provide advice on conservation policies and planning for protected areas.
WCS Canada is a federally registered charitable organization, Charitable no. BN 85425 5882 RR0001, supported by individuals, foundations, government grants, and progressive corporations.
