Northern Wildlife Fund

Fund, protection, animals, northern wildlifeFund for fragile, little-known wildlife species
Harvesting of natural resources, the development of ecotourism and climate change are affecting the fragile ecosystems of northern regions. Several species are involved, but little knowledge exists that would help understand how and to what extent species are affected.

The fund was established in 2001 to create private partnerships to invest in research on solutions to problems specific to wildlife in Northern Québec.

Objectives
  • To promote the conservation, rehabilitation and development of wildlife sites in Northern Québec;
  • To offer financial means to organizations interested in wildlife in the North and the integrated development of northern resources.

Results for 2001-2008
  • 56 projects on wildlife and wildlife habitats in Northern Québec
  • $1,290,966  in financial support
