The lands and waters of the St. Lawrence Valley have a very high abundance and diversity of species and habitats. Although the region has been heavily impacted, there are still intact shoreline ecosystems and important habitats for rare species.
The estuary and coasts are very important for marine and shoreline species. In addition to marine mammals, seabirds and marine fishes migrate to the area to feed in the rich waters of the estuary.
In addition to habitat protection, management and restoration, the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) is also working with municipalities to share information about important biodiversity areas. Species at risk protected on NCC properties in this region include spiny softshell turtle, green dragon and channel darter.
By symbolically adopting a piece of St. Lawrence Valley habitat, you are helping the Nature Conservancy of Canada ensure that our country’s natural spaces, and the species they sustain, are protected forever.
