Our Work:

  • Founded as an independent charity in 2014, Nature United is headquartered in Toronto with field offices located across the country. We are working to advance a vision of Canada where healthy communities and responsible economic development drive locally and globally significant conservation outcomes. 

    Our priorities are: Innovating for Climate Change, Conserving at Scale, and Investing in People. We achieve these goals by focusing on global impact and reconciliation. 

  • We build diverse partnerships by unearthing shared environmental, social or economic values, and we transform our collective strength into solutions to Canada’s greatest conservation challenges.

  • We have been invited by others to contribute to all of our current projects across Canada. We work closely with other environmental groups, including Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society, MakeWay, Pew Charities and Earth Rangers. We also partner directly with Indigenous Nations including the Heiltsuk, Kitasoo/Xai’Xais, Nuxalk and Ahousaht. Learn more about the Indigenous communities we work with.

  • Our conservation work is grounded in the knowledge that the increased authority of Indigenous peoples to steward their lands and waters results in durable and lasting solutions for people and nature over time.

    Indigenous-led conservation is articulated, defined and implemented by Indigenous peoples, who may choose to partner with organizations like Nature United in order to advance their goals and priorities. Working together, our shared outcomes depend on strong relationships and significant investments of time, energy, and resources from all involved.
