The Fondation intervenes in all living environments in Quebec (aquatic, wetlands, riparian, and terrestrial), for all wildlife species (fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals), whether they are endangered or not, and for different types of projects (wildlife, forest, agricultural, and environmental).
Our method of intervention
Provide financial or technical assistance to local organizations wanting to implement conservation projects and development of wildlife habitats.
Types of projects receiving support
- Wildlife habitat protection
Protect habitats that are particularly productive, diversified, or endangered.
- Development of wildlife habitats
Improve, restore, or create habitats that meet the wildlife needs pertaining to food, reproduction, free movement, and rest areas.
- Acquisition of knowledge
Acquire knowledge on wildlife habitats: characteristics, problems related to their conservation, techniques, and means of protecting, improving, or restoring them.
- Transfer of knowledge
Offer training on the means and techniques for the protection and enhancement of wildlife habitats, as well as provide awareness to the public about their importance.
- Wildlife partnership
Offer support to wildlife organizations to increase their intervention and solicitation capacity.
- Fishing and next generation
Train a new generation of adepts in wildlife harvesting in respect of ecological values and security.
Contribute directly to the protection of habitats located on private lands in specific situations where there is a need for an urgent or necessary intervention and there is no local organization in a position to intervene.
The Fondation acquires lands or negotiates conservation agreements with landowners. Its policy is to return the lands or acquired rights to local organizations while ensuring their long-term conservation.
