In December, the world united around a global plan to protect and restore nature. …To ensure we meet our targets this time — most notably, to conserve 30 per cent of our country’s lands and waters by 2030 — we must work together and collectively measure our success. All of society, united for our natural world. …Just last month, as a result of the Nature Conservancy of Canada’s efforts to broker and fund an agreement between NCC, Interfor and the Province of B.C., 75,000 hectares of rare inland temperate rainforest in the Incomappleux Valley has been protected. This monumental achievement for nature could not have happened without trust and collaboration across sectors. …That said, these achievements are still not enough. We now need to double down with urgency, because 30 per cent is no arbitrary figure. …Today, Canada is sitting at just under 14 per cent of the country’s land conserved.
