20 years of conservation!

November 29, 2021, Traditional territory of the Mohawk and Haudenosaunee – Twenty years ago, a group of nature enthusiasts founded the Quebec branch of the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS) in a small Montreal office.

Since then, CPAWS Quebec has come a long way. Through hard work they have achieved many victories for the protection of nature, such as the protection of the Moisie River, Tursujuq National Park, the Chic-Choc Mountains, the Groulx-Uapishka Mountains, critical habitat for the chorus frog, the Bancs-des-Américains Marine Protected Area and many more. In total, CPAWS Quebec has helped protect more than 120,000 km2 in Quebec, nearly half of the current network of protected areas.

You can help CPAWS Quebec achieve more victories!

To mark their 20th anniversary, their goal is to reach $10,000 in donations for the protection of natural areas.

Until December 8, ALL YOUR DONATIONS WILL BE DOUBLED up to $20,000.

These donations will be used to fund their campaigns to protect three at-risk species: the chorus frog, the woodland caribou, and the copper redhorse!
