Species at Risk in Ontario
Whenever you spot any species that are at risk in Ontario, take a picture or as many that is necessary and include a short description of your findings. The purpose of this mission is to help make a better understanding of our friends that we share the land with, and learn to live together in harmony.
This mission has ended and is no longer accepting submissions.
Ontario is home to more than 30,000 species, most have healthy populations, but others have declined or disappeared. Every individual species has effects on native ecosystems, which means conserving these species at risk will help preserve the wonders of nature that we cherish, for generations to come. Help protect Ontario's species at risk; from the docile Woodland Caribou, and Piping Plover, to the secretive American Badger and Grey Fox, Ontario has over 180 species considered ''at risk'' because of habitat loss, pollution, competition from invasive species,climate change, and/or over-harvesting.
