About Wildlife Conservation Society Canada:
Founded in 2004, Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) Canada is the Canadian branch of Wildlife Conservation Society, which operates in over 60 countries. WCS Canada uses scientific research and policy action to help protect wildlife across Canada in areas like the far north of Ontario, the Northern Boreal Mountains of BC and Yukon, and the Arctic Ocean. WCS Canada focuses its research and actions on species such as caribou, wolverines, bats, bison, freshwater fish, and marine animals.
Wildlife Conservation Society Canada reports that its research and actions have led to many conservation successes. These include an expansion of the Nahanni National Park, protection of Yukon’s Peel Watershed, and the creation of Castle Wildland Park in southern Alberta. In Ontario, WCS Canada says it has inspired the provincial government to commit to protection of the far north and to revise endangered species legislation. At the federal level, WCS Canada reports influencing the government’s commitment to reform the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act.
