Is your local government taking action on biodiversity? Survey deadline October 27

October 18, 2017

Is your local government engaged in area-based nature conservation? ICLEI Canada wants to know your opinion in a 10-minute survey open until October 27, 2017.

Canada Target 1 (of the 2020 Biodiversity Goals and Targets for Canada) aims to protect and conserve at least 17 per cent of terrestrial areas and inland waters, and 10 per cent of coastal and marine areas by 2020 to help stem the loss of biodiversity. Reaching this goal will take a pan-Canadian effort and municipalities have an important role to play. Currently, municipal parks and protected areas are not included in Canada’s report to the international conservation community, but many could be. Help ICLEI Canada bring the municipal voice to the Pathway to Canada Target 1 initiative by sharing your opinion.
