Ecologically speaking, we live in a rich and diverse neighbourhood. With 30,000 islands, thousands of kilometres of shoreline, rock barrens, mixed forests, hundreds of lakes and a wealth of wetlands, there is a remarkable variety of habitat and wildlife. Unfortunately this great diversity also means we have many species at risk, with over 50 found in the Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve.
Since 2007, the Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve has actively participated in species at risk education, research, and monitoring. GBBR builds community awareness of at-risk species through targeted information sessions, school visits, and other outreach opportunities. These educational events also promote stewardship actions to promote citizen science and to help maintain and restore habitat. Taking care of the health of our land and water is important for the well being of wildlife, ourselves and future generations.
