Conserving the foundation and features of the region that supports biodiversity, and our collective health and wellbeing in Ontario.
Did you know that TLB has the highest diversity of habitats in Ontario? The region is also home to 57 Species at Risk. It is a final refuge for many fish and wildlife species and a last stronghold of ecosystem services to support southern Ontario during Climate Change.
With species found from north and south and unique species entirely reliant on the region, TLB is a biodiversity hot-spot. The region provides invaluable ecosystem services locally and to both the Canadian Shield and St. Lawrence Lowlands. These habitats and biodiversity is a buffer for climate change effects, in turn, keeping us healthy!
Through our Highland Habitat Project we are assessing areas that support biodiversity and provide core ecosystem services. We are taking actions and working with landowners and volunteers to recover the 57 Species at Risk in the region. We are providing site visits for landowners and even in areas plant materials to help steward properties and keep Ontario healthy.

This project was made possible with the support of Environment Canada and Climate Change’s Community Nominated Priority Places Project, and in partnership with 10 core conservation agencies across the region! Thank you partners for your invaluable help to conserve this integral area for the ongoing health and wellbeing of Ontarians.
