Since 2002, Appalachian Corridor and its partners carried out an enormous amount of work towards the creation of protected areas on private land. Over 12 500 ha of natural habitat are now protected in perpetuity in the Eastern Townships. These habitats play a vital role in the survival of the plant and wildlife species that make up the territory’s biodiversity.
Appalachian Corridor receives financial support from local and national governments, however, the organisation’s conservation project has grown to such an extent that it is now imperative to search for additional funds. The urgency of finding other sources of financial support makes us turn towards individuals, businesses and interest groups in order to raise 1 million dollars over a five-year period. This amount will allow us to strengthen our conservation strategy and secure, for future generations, the protection of natural areas in the Appalachians of Southern Quebec.
The Emergency Bridging Loan and Safeguard Fund will serve as leverage for the purchase of private properties for conservation purposes and as an instrument for monitoring and maintaining protected lands.
The Influence and Education Fund will be used to increase its influential role among municipalities and MRCs in relation to taking biodiversity into account in land-use planning and to increase education and awareness activities within communities. Your contribution is vital!
