Description

The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) is pleased to announce a $500,000 donation from TransAlta to its Force for Nature campaign.

In celebration of its 100th anniversary, the global power generation company is making a $500,000 donation to NCC, and challenging its suppliers, contractors and other corporations across Canada to match their donation with an additional $500,000 to NCC to help protect some of the country’s most vulnerable natural spaces and the plant and animal species that inhabit them.

The TransAlta donation will advance NCC’s work with corporations across Canada and will invest in land conservation and stewardship projects close to the Canadian communities in which the company operates.  Those projects include areas such as:

  • Critical wildlife corridors in the Elk Valley, in BC’s southern Rocky Mountains;
  • Habitat for songbirds and mammals in the Upper North Saskatchewan River Valley, west of Edmonton;
  • Rich biodiversity in the North Saskatchewan River Valley, north of Saskatoon;
  • Rare coastal habitat along the south shore of Ontario’s  Manitoulin Island; 
  • A haven for the Eastern Spiny Softshell turtle, on Quebec’s Lake Champlain;
  • Salt marshes that provide habitat for endangered species on the Northumberland Strait in New Brunswick;
          
    The Force for Nature campaign launched in 2007 with the ambitious goal of raising half a billion dollars to protect 2,000 square kilometres of some of Canada’s most threatened natural landscapes.
