World Water Day offers us a chance to reflect on our connection to water and how we can best protect it. Across the Greater Golden Horseshoe (GGH), expanding urban footprints are threatening lands that filter water, control flooding and recharge aquifers. By guiding development in existing urban centres and protecting natural features, we can protect the source of drinking water for millions of residents. “Grow the Greenbelt to protect vulnerable water supplies” has become a rallying cry for the more than 35,000 Ontarians who wrote to the provincial government demanding greater protection for their water.
As 2016 draws to a close, we’re thinking back to some of our major accomplishments for nature this past year. We could not have done it without our members, friends, followers, funders and sponsors. With your support, we continue to be Ontario’s leading organization protecting Ontario’s wild species and wild spaces.

When we celebrated the passing of Ontario’s new Endangered Species Act (ESA) back in 2007, I could never have imagined that it might serve as a Trojan horse for development. Yet that is exactly what may happen. Alas, our tarnished and tattered ESA may open the door to development in the habitat of species at risk in the Greenbelt.
