Protecting nature is an effective solution to counter the loss of biodiversity, pollution and climate change.

Today, a few days before the 2024 edition of Canadian Environment Week, the Honorable Steven Guilbeault, Minister of Environment and Climate Change, announces that an investment of $8.2 million to Nature-Action Québec and its partners Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) and Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC) have made it possible to carry out activities to protect and restore the critical habitat of the western chorus frog in Montérégie and Outaouais.

Part of this investment allowed Nature-Action Québec to acquire, in 2024, more than 13 hectares of natural environments in Boucherville, La Prairie and Longueuil. These lands are intended for protection in perpetuity and will improve the ecological connectivity of critical habitat for the Western Chorus Frog, a threatened species in Canada. Restoration, communication and mobilization projects in collaboration with municipalities, and measures targeting invasive alien species were also carried out. In Outaouais, this financial support enabled CIC to protect, in 2023, a property of more than 10 hectares sheltering a multitude of species, including the western chorus frog. Thus, since the start of the project in 2022, more than 42 hectares have been protected in Outaouais and more than 39 hectares in Montérégie.
