More Conservation

We will protect 25 per cent of Canada’s land and 25 per cent of Canada’s oceans by 2025.

25% protected land and water in Canada
Canada has the longest coastline in the world, one-fifth of the world’s fresh water, and vast and wild forests – but climate change puts them all at risk. It’s more important than ever to protect the natural landscape we all know and love.

To protect more of Canada for our kids and grandkids to enjoy, we will move forward with an ambitious plan to conserve 25 per cent of Canada’s land and 25 per cent of Canada’s oceans by 2025, working toward 30 per cent in each by 2030.

We will ground these efforts in science, Indigenous knowledge, and local perspectives, and will advocate for countries around the world to set a 30 per cent conservation goal as well.
