Ev­ery­one must pitch in

David Miller, pres­i­dent and CEO of WWF Canada, says any signi icant progress on the path to save Canada’s wildlife will re­quire ac­tion from all lev­els – com­mu­ni­ties, busi­nesses and gov­ern­ment.

“It’s clear from the re­port that this re­ally signi icant loss of wildlife is due to hu­man ac­tiv­ity,” he said. “In or­der to change it, we all need to change the way we are act­ing.”

He is en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple to vol­un­teer at lo­cal con­ser­va­tion and habi­tat restora­tion groups and to con­sider what their em­ploy­ers can do to sup­port wildlife.

The key is to think lo­cal – even some­thing as small as plant­ing na­tive species in your gar­den can help species at risk in your com­mu­nity, he said.
