Rising to the twin challenge of climate change and biodiversity loss
(December 20, 2019)   -   Addressing the twin crises of climate change and biodiversity loss has left many of our political leaders and institutions floundering. At WCS Canada, we continue to deliver science-driven solutions for addressing these problems, from identifying key wild areas for protection to developing new ways to help wildlife survive specific impacts, like rising temperatures. While it is easy to lose hope in these challenging times, we think there have been some important signs of progress this year.

Canada’s invisible biodiversity crisis
(December 02, 2019)   -   Far from being a vast untouched wild landscape, Canada’s northern expanses are being relentlessly exploited for resources. Add the effects of climate change to the impact of human activities and you have what could be called a “threat cocktail” – a wicked combination of impacts that often reinforce and amplify each other. If we act now, future generations may still have a chance to experience “wild Canada” firsthand.
