Parks Canada Receives the Gift to the Earth Award

A Gift to the Earth award is WWF-International’s highest accolade for conservation work of outstanding global merit. It is a recognition of inspiring leadership and conservation achievement that contributes to protecting the living planet.

On behalf of all Canadians, Parks Canada is honoured to receive this award in recognition of efforts to create new protected areas and to reintroduce species at risk into their natural habitat. In protecting new areas and through our species recovery efforts, we are also facilitating new and exciting opportunities for Canadians to enjoy, appreciate and connect with their natural heritage. This work could not have been successful without our collaboration with Aboriginal peoples and our many partners, and the remarkable support of Canadians across the country.
