Wildlife Habitat Canada

Wildlife Habitat Canada is a national, non-profit, charitable conservation organization established in 1984 by Environment Canada, provincial wildlife agencies and conservation organizations. We work through partnerships with communities, landowners, governments, non-government organizations and industry to find effective solutions to address problems facing wildlife habitat. We are guided by a highly diverse Board of Directors, with representatives from national conservation organizations and government agencies.

NL Murre Conservation Fund

The NL Murre Conservation Fund encourages the conservation of Murre as functioning components of ecosystems, and recognizes their contribution toward the biological diversity of native species and habitats in Newfoundland and Labrador. The priorities of the NL Murre Conservation Fund are to fund projects that support the conservation and management of Murre populations and their habitat, and to provide funding for projects that involve the people of Newfoundland and Labrador in the conservation, management and the sustainable harvest of Murre. This may include assessments of Murre breeding populations, productivity, survival, harvests and other mortality factors, as well as projects that focus on long term conservation of high quality habitat, particularly that which is vulnerable.

Projects under Newfoundland and Labrador Murre Conservation Fund Grants category support Murre conservation activities and management, including those that:

  • Assess Murre breeding populations, productivity, survival, harvests and other mortality factors; or
  • Facilitate Murre hunting stewardship and wildlife conservation to ensure that the Murre populations are sustained; or
  • Support other Murre habitat conservation activities and events.
