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.
Projects under this category focus on furthering the understanding of waterfowl and/or habitat conservation or the NAWMP human dimensions component:
- as outlined in the NAWMP and Habitat/Species Joint Venture Implementation Plans, including research for conservation, restoration, protection and enhancement of habitat in priority areas; or
- support habitat conservation for other important migratory game birds.
Examples of research projects that have received grant funding in the past:
- Long Point Waterfowl’s Lake St. Clair Initiative: Habitat Selection and Survival of American Black Ducks and Mallards during Autumn-Winter;
- Assessing the ecological influences on the efficacy of benthic barriers to control yellow flag iris in high priority waterfowl habitats across British Columbia;
- Understanding the dynamics of people's interactions with waterfowl: Assessing hunter's
preferences for waterfowl management in Canada.
