EASTMAN, QC – Government of Canada invests in one of the largest relatively undisturbed temperate forests in the world. Canada’s wildlife and its habitat are in crisis. Addressing the triple planetary crisis of rapid biodiversity loss, climate change, and pollution starts with protecting nature. To protect and restore Canada’s natural environments, collaboration between the provinces, territories, Indigenous peoples, and other partners is essential. The ministry of Environment and Climate Change Canada announced an investment of $2.19 million to Appalachian Corridor over the next three years. The funding will help protect and recover species at risk by reducing threats that they face and enhancing their habitats in the Northern Green Mountains region of southern Quebec. This investment is under the Community-Nominated Priority Places program and almost doubles the initial $2.4 million granted between 2019 and 2023 for the first phase of this project.
