Lake Superior truly is a great body of water. It is larger by volume than all the other Great Lakes combined, representing an astonishing 10 per cent of the world’s entire surface freshwater. It is home to some of the last remaining healthy populations of lake trout in the Great Lakes and is the only one of these lakes to still have any kind of true coastal wilderness.
Partnership is at the heart of each of the Nature Conservancy of Canada’s (NCC’s) many remarkable successes. Today – thanks in part to partnerships with leading corporations – NCC continues to extend its protection of habitat on land and in water for the many species that rely on these places.
Across the country, the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) and its partners work to conserve important natural habitat for the plants and animals that live in it. Much of NCC’s work aims to improve habitat in wetlands, along riverbanks, in estuaries or along coastlines.
The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) is the nation’s leading not-for-profit, private land conservation organization, working to protect our most important natural areas and the species they sustain. Since 1962, NCC and its partners have helped to protect more than 2.7 million acres (more than 1.1 million hectares), coast to coast.
