Lower Trent Conservation
Did You Know?

In the past 100 years, anywhere from 200 to 500 terrestrial vertebrate species have gone extinct. This is at least 100 times greater than the natural rate of extinction. 40.7% of amphibian species are endangered or at risk of becoming endangered.


Outreach and Stewardship

Education and outreach are critically important to engaging residents in environmentally sustainable
behaviours and drawing attention to conservation issues.  Special events, workshops, volunteer activities, displays, new media and website development, press releases and publications are some of the initiatives that provide opportunities for everyone to learn about the importance of environmental protection and stewardship of the Lower Trent watershed region.
