Action locale

La force de notre organisation vient de notre réseau d’experts, de partenaires et de volontaires. Nos groupes sont engagés dans de nombreux projets à l’échelle locale. Vous voulez nous aider? Contactez notre bureau national ou un groupe local près de chez vous. Si vous avez déjà rassemblé autour de vous des personnes motivées et que vous souhaitez travailler sur un projet particulier dans votre région, vous pouvez créer un groupe local. Selon les principes de notre organisation:
Les groupes doivent être formés de 3 membres ou plus qui souhaiteraient devenir actifs au sein de leur communauté locale ou d’une zone géographique plus importante; ils doivent se concentrer sur un ou plusieurs enjeux de protection et exister sur le long terme, de façon continue. Autrement, les questions de court terme seront gérées au sein du groupe principal déjà existant ou bien au niveau national si aucun groupe principal n’existe déjà. 

Keep whales close to your heart with this beautiful whale pendant!

It's no coincidence that Valentine's Day and World Whale Day fall in the same week. Because right now, these majestic creatures need our love more than ever before. 

Make a gift in support of our campaign to protect critically endangered whales, and we’ll send a special someone (or you!) this one-of-a-kind whale tail pendant, designed just for Sierra Club supporters.

A small town, $500M, and the NAFTA court battle

Last weekend, women in Sandy Cove, Nova Scotia organized a Women’s March.  The Sandy Cove Women's March garnered international attention last year as one of the smallest marches in the international event to show strength and solidarity for women’s rights in the face of the Trump presidency.

Sandy Cove holds a special place in my heart, as it was there that I met Carol and Ashraf Mahtab in their lovely home, and around a beautiful lunch table with the people who were dedicated to stopping the Digby Quarry.

A family matter.

Family. Food. Warmth. Safety. Home.

These are the things I’m thinking about in the intensifying few days leading up to the holidays.

It always makes me think about our families of wildlife, out there in the elements, finding their way. I’m in awe of their resilience, their own unique family and social structures, and how they have adapted over millennia.  I wonder how they do it.

Trump's lump of coal

Breathing is easier “beyond coal.”

In 2007, before the shut down of the coal-fired power generating plants in Ontario, there were 29 smog days and 11 smog advisories in Toronto.  It seemed that almost every hot day there was choking smog.  At that time, I couldn’t even escape to my cottage in the Kawarthas.  That same year, there were 21 smog days and 8 smog advisories in Peterborough County.
