We’re reimagining how to work with forests in response to climate change. Under business as usual, Canada’s forest lands contribute more to making global climate change worse than they protect against it—this must change. We work with forest entrepreneurs and forestry communities in the Maritime Provinces, the unceded territories of the Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik Nations, to reverse destruction and ensure forests thrive now and in the future.
Together, we are mobilizing citizen climate action in the rural Maritime region. Through knowledge-sharing and storytelling, we are supporting the diverse 80,000 family-forest owners across the Wabanaki region to practice climate-smart forest management and protect their forests for generations to come – all while increasing climate resilience at a global and local scale.
We need healthy forests now, more than ever. We partner with people and businesses who take responsibility for their climate impact by saving old forests through carbon offsets, avoiding the emissions that would be released if these forests were destroyed. These climate forests then act as deepening carbon sinks with countless co-benefits.
As the climate changes, the growing conditions for trees also change. By translating leading science into practical response strategies and training forestry professionals to manage forests for greater climate resilience, we can grow forests that are better able to adapt and better able to protect biodiversity and store carbon over the long term.
Our forest restoration program is based on securing large areas of degraded land and replanting a diversity of native trees to bring back lost forests. By purchasing the lands outright, we can ensure that these forests will never be destroyed again and will flourish for future generations. To date, we have restored over 2,700 acres of special Wabanaki-Acadian forest and dream of greatly expanding our impact in this region with new partners in years to come. We acknowledge that the lands we own are on the unceded territories of the Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik Nations, and strive to work in solidarity with movements for Indigenous land rights and reclamation.
Our forests can be one of the most important tools for mitigating the climate crisis. Your support will help us protect and restore vital forest ecosystems, while creating opportunities for rural communities.
We protect and restore forests so that they can continue to provide for communities for generations to come. Check out our impact in Canada to date:
