We’re very excited to share lots of good news with you about what you helped us accomplish in 2011.
Thanks to you, we finished building the captive breeding facility for Eastern Loggerhead Shrikes at Mountsberg Conservation Area. There are only about 70 of these birds left in the wild in Canada – that’s how close they are to extinction – but with your help, they now have a better chance than ever before. In the past few weeks our shrikes have been laying eggs and hatching young – and the project is going very well!
We are also working to create new forests, grasslands and wetlands at Glenorchy Conservation Area in Oakville – places that you can enjoy with friends and family – and places that will provide habitat and refuge for songbirds, grassland birds and other creatures that have less and less space that they can call home.
These are two important projects that we couldn’t have realized without your support.
We hope that one day when you’re out for a walk at a place like Glenorchy, you’ll see a small bird with a black mask and say “that looks like an Eastern Loggerhead Shrike” and you’ll know just how much you helped accomplish.
I hope you’ll take a few minutes now and celebrate our achievements this year. Your gift and every gift that was entrusted to us – small or large – made a difference.
