About ¾ of Canada’s original mixed grass prairie has already been converted, but a significant area – about 6 million ha – remains. Your gift will protect this important ecosystem.
Birds confined to the grasslands of the North American Great Plains are declining faster than any other bird group. Icons like the Chestnut-collared Longspur have declined by roughly 95% since 1970. The coming decade is likely our last chance to avert the extinction of these key components of the grassland ecosystem.
