Biodiversity otherwise known as the variety of life on Earth is at risk.
Sierra Club of Canada works to protect Canadas forests from unsustainable rates of logging and unacceptable logging practices.
Our oceans are at risk from over-fishing, oil and gas development and land-based pollution. Aquaculture operations cause increased pollution, as well as threatening wild fisheries with contamination from exotic species.
Endangered species require recovery strategies to bring them back from the brink of extinction. Sierra Club of Canada is committed to the long-term health of the planets terrestrial and ocean ecosystems and the people whose livelihood depends upon them.
Threats to the Mackenzie Valley
Canadas longest and possibly wildest river is threatened by the proposed Mackenzie Gas Project in the Northwest Territories. The Mackenzie Valley, home of the 1800 km long Mackenzie River, as well as the Mackenzie Delta, the worlds fourth largest arctic delta, will be transformed permanently if this project gets the go-ahead.
