An Invite to All from Ontario Nature, a public interest group dedicated to protecting and preserving Ontario’s natural areas
Posted May 20th, 2021 on Niagara At Large
Please join us on May 27th for an informative discussion about expanding Ontario’s protected areas.
During the Your Protected Places webinar, we will consider emerging opportunities and unveil a collective StoryMap showcasing special places across the province that people would like to permanently set aside from development for future generations.
Though the Government of Ontario recently announced its intention to protect more natural areas <https://ontarionature.thankyou4caring.org/page.redir?target=https%3a%2f%2fnews.ontario.ca%2fen%2frelease%2f60977%2fontario-working-with-conservation-experts-to-protect-more-natural-areas&srcid=47768&srctid=1&erid=7167978&trid=878925b2-451c-4597-9444-2ab72051c546>, it provided no public process for offering input on where or how protected areas should be established.
To raise awareness and open up the conversation, Ontario Nature, the David Suzuki Foundation, the Wilderness Committee, the Carolinian Canada Coalition, CPAWS-Ottawa Valley and Environmental Defence have invited people from across the province to contribute candidates for the Your Protected Places StoryMap.
The webinar will be an opportunity to learn more about:
- • Canada’s commitments to the new international protected areas targets;
- • Indigenous Protected and Conserved Areas; and
- • Options for protection in heavily developed southern Ontario.
We will also lead a discussion about potential paths forward and how to encourage all political leaders and representatives to embrace the new protected areas targets.
We hope you will be able to join the webinar on May 27th from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m.
