Il est impossible de protéger ce qu’on ne connaît pas. La diversité naturelle se manifeste partout autour de nous sous différentes formes. C’est pourquoi notre Fondation travaille avec des individus, des partenaires et des groupes communautaires pour diffuser notre connaissance de la faune, de la flore et des milieux naturels. Nous œuvrons pour la protection de cette biodiversité afin que tous puissent l’apprécier, aujourd’hui et à l’avenir.

It feels like a death in the family.
The New England Aquarium Right Whale Research Program has just released confirmation of the death of the 13th right whale.
Couplet, #2123, was found on Monday, east of Cape Cod.
The summer is a time when many folks take a break, take it a little slower and take some needed time off.
And while our small team plans to do a bit of that, in fact, it’s shaping up to be one of the busiest times for us.
The summer is also a time when funds drop off, but our work doesn’t stop! We could use your support and a funding boost at this time.
Sierra Club’s Wanda Baxter reports on her experience at the International Conference on Ecology and Transportation Conference in Salt Lake City – and the new collaborative opportunities created and connections made for our Watch for Wildlife program.
Few things are as spectacular and awe-inducing as a breaching humpback whale.
The sheer enormity of their body, with such strength and grace – blasting out of the water, seeming to defy the laws of gravity even just for a moment – is enough to take your breath away. It’s acrobatics and ballet on the largest scale, with a splash down that is out of this world!
It’s what they do, and it is what they have done for millennia.

Hosted by the Alberta Recreation and Parks Association with its partners the Canadian Recreation and Parks Association, and the Canadian Parks Council, the conference, which included many invited speakers and three hundred attendees, was an inspired four days of discussion.
I'm devastated to report that the licence for oil and gas drilling has been approved in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, and there’s not one thing whales can do to stop it.
We're not giving up and neither are they.
At this very moment – mile by mile, heading north – they’re coming back.
Over the next few weeks, blue whales will be making their way back to Canadian waters.
It’s the holidays, and I can’t get this song out of my head, and those beautiful words sung by our beloved Joni Mitchell,
I wish I had a river.
Admittedly, the song is a good dose of melancholy, and some longing for home, a longing for Canada, where the landscape is rich with rivers so long you could teach your feet to fly.
Things are heating up in our campaign to protect the blue whale and the Gulf of St. Lawrence and I want to share the latest news with you!
Inspired by my father's love of fishing, swimming, and camping in the Birch Cove area near Halifax, I became interested in all things watery and wild. But to date I have not touched the water of Halifax Harbour, in the city where I was raised and choose to live.
In just the last few days, 1,347 concerned people like you have signed and sent a letter asking the government not to settle with a New Jersey company who has been thwarted from developing a destructive quarry in the Bay of Fundy.
Because of you, we have been an instrumental force on this campaign since the beginning, and we’re not going anywhere. But we need your help!
Thirteen years ago, I was hired as a consultant to provide expert advice on the impacts of the Digby Quarry. The local community had become alarmed about the quarry when they heard about plans to build a marine terminal at the site. Clearly, the quarry, which was originally 3.9 hectares –the size of quarry that eludes environmental assessment in Nova Scotia –was going to be much larger than they had thought. Turned out, a 120 hectare quarry was planned, located 50 metres from the shoreline.
The Thundering Water Forest is a 500 acre woodland on the Welland River in Niagara Falls. For over two years, a struggle has been taking place between the Haudenosaunee First Nations and GR (CAN) Investment Co. Ltd., an investor for massive commercial and real estate development in Niagara Falls.
Despite enormous pressures from developers and municipalities in the Niagara Region, the provincial government denied all requests to shrink and dilute the Greenbelt. This was done in two locations. One was in Grimsby south of the Niagara Escarpment, in an area that is increasingly being used for tree fruit and grape crops. Another is in a corridor from Lake Ontario to Lake Gibson, along the Twelve Mile Creek.
