WWF - Canada Annual Report 2018

President’s Message

© EMILY VANDERMEER / WWF- CANADA

It’s been an incredible year of firsts at World Wildlife Fund Canada in our 51st year. None of it would have been possible without you, our fabulous supporters. Thank you. Whether it was your first time, or you’ve been a supporter forever; whether you gave once, now and again or monthly; whether you gave a little or a lot; whether you gave your time to fundraise or volunteer for wildlife; whether you funded or approved a grant; whether you’re a business big or small that supports wildlife, you have made an incredible impact. As WWF-Canada’s president and CEO, I am so grateful. This was the first summer in more than 10 years that capelin, a tiny and struggling fish species vital to the marine ecosystem, were seen spawning off Ship Cove, N.L., after we restored their coastal habitat in the first of many such projects. And this shipping season was the first that captains in the Eastern Arctic had help to navigate clear of wildlife with WWF’s newest mariner’s guide. In Nepal, conservation efforts you’ve supported put the country on track to be the first in the world to double wild tiger populations by 2022. It’s also the first year you’ve raised more than $1.44 million for wildlife in the 28-year history of the annual CN Tower Climb for Nature and the first year I’ve joined thousands of you to conquer the 1,776 steps to the top. It’s the first time, too, that we brought the Kids’ Run for Nature to 20 communities across Canada, more than doubling the funds raised by 2,000 of our youngest supporters. In my first year as president and CEO I’ve witnessed the incredible feats that can be accomplished when we come together for our planet.

Thank you for doing so much to put wildlife first.

Sincerely,

Megan Leslie

More wildlife to benefit from habitat-friendly renewables

  • In total, WWF-Canada has now mapped 1.4 million square kilometres of Canada for renewable energy potential and conservation value, helping speed the shift to a wildlife-friendly, low-carbon future.
  • In 2018, we expanded the Renewables for Nature interactive decision-making tool to cover more of Canada.
  • This tool overlays renewable energy data and conservation data on the same detailed map. The energy layer reveals the wind, solar, hydro and tidal power potential in a particular region. Meanwhile, the conservation layer captures data on 728 species at risk, along with biodiversity, habitat, migratory routes and other environmental uses for the area.
  • Our pilot project in New Brunswick and the Bay of Fundy in 2016 proved hugely successful. With support from individual donors, Loblaw Companies Limited, the McLean Foundation and the Peter Gilgan Foundation, we’ve expanded Renewables for Nature to focus on wind and solar energy in Saskatchewan and Alberta.
  • Using Renewables for Nature, developers and decision makers can quickly identify regions with high renewable-energy potential and low conflict with wildlife. These energy projects will help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the impacts of climate change, which can often be costly for developers. They will also minimize the impact of renewable energy on vulnerable habitats and species.

Steering clear of marine mammals in Arctic waters

  • WWF-Canada shared the new mariner’s guide with many vessels in the Eastern Arctic Ocean, including cargo ships and the Canadian Coast Guard, to help protect over 34 species of Arctic marine mammals — from narwhals to bowhead whales, belugas and polar bears.
  • Launched at the end of May at the Canadian Marine Advisory Council meeting, the guide received a warm welcome. Parks Canada has expressed interest in using information from it in the management plan for Tallurutiup Imanga National Marine Conservation Area.
    Funded by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and developed with feedback from the community of Pond Inlet, the new guide includes a pictorial chart of key species, and maps of designated conservation areas, and critical habitat, migration routes and calving areas.
  • As sea ice melts and industry grows, ship traffic in Canada’s Eastern Arctic is on the rise. More vessels mean increased noise, which can drive marine mammals away from their usual habitat and make it difficult for whales to communicate. Ships can also disrupt feeding patterns and damage sea ice migration routes. In addition, they can interfere with the natural formation of sea ice by making it unstable and postpone whale migration, causing them to become trapped in the ice.
  • The problem is particularly serious near Pond Inlet, where the number of ship transits to service the Mary River iron ore mine is increasing at a staggering rate. The shipping routes cross Tallurutiup Imanga, the proposed site of Canada’s largest national marine conservation area.

Capelin coaxed back

  • Last fall, WWF-Canada set out to restore the beach at Ship Cove, N.L. to promote the recovery of capelin, an incredibly important forage fish. The results were remarkable. After a decade-long absence, capelin returned to Ship Cove to spawn in 2018.
  • Alarmingly, the capelin’s abundance has plummeted 70 per cent in the last two years.
  • With support from Fisheries and Oceans Canada’s Coastal Restoration Fund, we restored gravel to the shoreline.
  • The Ship Cove beach area offered prime spawning conditions for capelin, with gravel just the right size close to the shoreline. However, about 10 years ago, a quarry operation removed the beach gravel, altering the natural landscape and making it impossible for capelin to spawn over most of the area.
  • Capelin may be small, but these little fish are key to the health of Newfoundland and Labrador’s marine ecosystems. They convert energy contained in zooplankton into a healthy and accessible food source for a variety of seabirds, whales and fish. However, overfishing and environmental changes have led to big drops in their population. And that’s bad news for the species they support.

Tigers rising

  • Between November 2017 and April 2018, WWF-Canada supported Nepal in implementing tiger conservation projects including research, documentation and human-tiger conflict mitigation.
  • According to Nepal’s recent wild tiger survey, there are now an estimated 235 wild tigers in the country — nearly twice as many as the estimated 121 tigers in 2009. As a result, Nepal is poised to be the first country to double its number of wild tigers.
  • Today, fewer than 3,900 of these majestic animals remain, pushed to the brink of extinction by habitat loss, poaching and illegal trade.
  • In 2010, representatives of the world’s 13 tiger-range countries gathered at the St. Petersburg Tiger Summit. Alarmed by the critical state of tiger populations, the leaders of these countries committed to the TX2 campaign. This global effort aims to double the number of wild tigers across the planet by 2022, the year of the tiger in the Chinese zodiac.
  • WWF-Canada has supported TX2 since its launch. This year, we continued to contribute to tiger conservation projects in Nepal by funding population monitoring, community based anti-poaching operations, habitat improvement, awareness-raising campaigns and training to help people in local communities become citizen scientists.

Reducing road salt

  • WWF-Canada is working to educate various property management organizations about proper salt use, as up to 70 per cent of road salt contamination in the Great Lakes watershed can from come from private properties.
  • We held two Smart About Salt training events that saw 15 property managers and 30 contractors trained and certified in salt use, including Metrolinx and Ryerson University.
  • We teamed up with the Smart About Salt Council to promote certification for the contractors and municipal staff who de-ice roads and parking lots.
  • We partnered with the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority, Environmental Defence and the Canadian Environmental Law Association to advocate for an Ontario-wide road salt reduction strategy.
  • As WWF-Canada’s recent Watershed Reports reveal, the Great Lakes watershed lacks good water quality and road salt is a significant part of the problem.
  • Each winter, Ontarians dump mountains of salt on the province’s highways, sidewalks and parking lots — often 30 times more than the amount required for safe conditions.
  • In the Great Lakes region, salt levels in groundwater and surface water regularly reach dangerous levels for aquatic wildlife. In fact, some urban creeks are as salty as the ocean in the winter.
  • For aquatic life, the result is toxic. Freshwater fish, frogs and turtles can’t survive in water that’s too salty. Nor can the eggs and larvae of wildlife such as mussels and salamanders.
  • The Great Lakes basin contains one-fifth of the world’s fresh surface water. With the help of our supporters, we’re making this vital habitat #LessSalty.

One million Wildlifers make an impact

In 2017–2018, the number of Canadians who became Wildlifers, individuals taking action for nature through WWF-Canada, reached 1 million.

Each year, WWF-Canada calls on Canadians to take action for our planet — at home, at work, at school and in their communities through the support of our Go Wild Grants presented by TELUS. And each year, we’re amazed by the response we get. Across the country, individuals and groups are restoring habitats, fundraising to support conservation projects, making contributions as citizen scientists and much more. Below are a few examples of how these incredible champions made a difference for nature.

Shoreline stewards: Keeping aquatic ecosystems safe from plastic

For 25 years, volunteers across the country have been keeping garbage out of Canada’s rivers, lakes and oceans through the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup — a partnership between WWF-Canada and Ocean Wise.

Since the first cleanup in 1994, more than 700,000 volunteers have collected more than 1.2 million kilograms of garbage. In 2017 alone, nearly 60,000 participants took part in the initiative, cleaning 2,990 kilometres of shoreline from Newfoundland, to Nunavut, to B.C. Those efforts filled more than 10,000 trash bags and kept hundreds of thousands of tiny bits of plastic, cigarette butts and other waste out of sensitive habitats.

A big thank you to the generous support of our presenting sponsor Loblaw Companies Limited, as well as our regional sponsors OLG, YVR and the Port of Vancouver.

Backyard boosters: Helping wildlife, one garden at a time

The Carolinian zone in southern Ontario may represent just one per cent of Canada’s land mass, but it boasts 125 rare plant and animal species — more than anywhere else in the country. These include Blanding’s turtles, southern flying squirrels, rusty-patched bumble bees and monarch butterflies. But this biodiversity hotspot is also home to a quarter of the country’s human population. As cities grow, they’re crowding out native wildlife.

Fortunately, these species are getting a helping hand from green-thumbed volunteers through WWF-Canada’s In the Zone program. A partnership with Carolinian Canada, the initiative provides resources to help southern Ontarians plant more native species. It also lets citizen scientists track their backyard biodiversity and connect to other like-minded gardeners.

In the Zone now has more than 1,800 participants — double the number from 2016. By making the pledge and adding wildflowers, milkweed, oak trees and other native plants to their backyards and balconies, these habitat heroes are helping create a flourishing corridor of food and shelter for wildlife.

Fit-minded fundraisers break a sweat for nature

In April 2018, WWF-Canada’s CN Tower Climb for Nature reached new heights thanks to the fundraising efforts of more than 8,500 participants, including more than 100 corporate teams. Together, they raised $1.44 million — a new record for the 28-year-old annual event that sees Wildlifers climb the Tower’s 1,776 steps to protect nature.

They weren’t the only ones working up a sweat for nature. In May and June, children from 20 communities across the country took part in our Kids’ Run for Nature: a series of 1 km, 3 km and 5 km fun runs and fundraising events founded by two 10-year-old girls who wanted to help protect wildlife. The events drew about 1,900 runners and raised nearly $88,000 to support WWF-Canada.

Passionate employees: Creating planet-friendly workplaces

For years, eco-conscious companies have been going green with support from our Living Planet @ Work (LP@W) program. Launched in 2011 with HP as its founding partner, the initiative equips employees and managers with the resources they need to take planet-positive actions. Today, RSA Canada serves as the program’s presenting sponsor, helping businesses reduce their paper consumption, switch to energy-efficient lights, adopt sustainable procurement practices and more.

To date, 1,350 organizations have joined LP@W, reduced their environmental footprint and raised $1.55 million to support WWF-Canada. In 2018 alone, 140 new organizations got involved, while workplace champions raised more than $250,000 for conservation projects.

Student-led stewardship: Going green on campus

In 2018, we wrapped up the pilot phase of our Living Planet @ Campus program and went into high gear for its national launch.  During the pilot, campus sustainability offices and more than 1000 students helped with the development of the program. And students took action.  At Sir Sandford Fleming College in Peterborough, Ontario, students used a WWF Go Wild School Grant to establish an apiary on campus and raise awareness about the decline in bees and other pollinators. Elsewhere, students organized shoreline cleanups, tree-planting events and in March 2018, teams from 12 post-secondary institutions participated in WWF’s new Designing Change for a Living Planet — a hackathon-style event where student teams compete to conceive and pitch their best solutions to environmental problems.

With the national launch, Living Planet @ Campus will introduce the Living Planet Leader certification for students. This certification confirms that the student has knowledge and experience in sustainability, with skills they can use at work and in their community.

Habitat heroes: Restoring nature across Canada

From coast to coast to coast, community-based organizations work hard to protect Canada’s lakes, rivers, streams and wetlands. In 2017, we launched the WWF Restoration Fund in partnership with Coca-Cola Canada to help them, contributing $210,000 to three ambitious projects.

In New Brunswick, we supported ACAP Saint John. Funding allowed the environmental not-for-profit to restore lost rivers and restore more than 27,000 square metres of floodplain habitat, helping brook trout, green frogs, yellow spotted salamander, songbirds and other species.

On the west coast, Salt Spring Island Conservancy in B.C. used funds to return a former golf course back to nature, restoring thousands of square metres of wetlands, riparian and upland habitat. With the help of dozens of volunteers, they planted 10,600 native plants, removed 9,730 square metres of invasive species and dug up 670 kilograms of subsurface drainage and irrigation pipes to help water flow more naturally.

Meanwhile, B.C.’s Central West Coast Forest Society leveraged dollars from the WWF Restoration Fund to help undo decades of logging damage. Working alongside the Toquaht First Nation, they are restoring stream and riparian forest habitats on the western most edge of Vancouver Island. In 2017, this included planting 7,740 square metres of native plants and removing debris jams so that salmon can make their way upstream to spawn.

Freshwater friends: protecting lakes, rivers and wetlands

Another way WWF-Canada supports community watershed stewardship is through the Loblaw Water Fund. Since 2014 this project has engaged more than 16,000 volunteers, who have collected almost 15,000 fish, water and benthic macroinvertebrate samples and restored more than 3,300 hectares of habitat for freshwater species.

In 2018, we invested $250,000 from the fund in 11 projects across the country. Examples of these include reclaiming fallow hay fields for wildlife in B.C., helping farmers conserve prairie wetlands in the Assiniboine watershed and sinking old Christmas trees into Ontario’s Credit River to create new spawning habitat for brook trout.

Note From Our CFO

This past financial year was an incredible one for WWF-Canada. This was only made possible by our donors, hardworking staff and volunteers. All areas of fundraising and dollars spent on conservation efforts continued to rise, while keeping our administration costs under control. As a result, we were able to spend more on conservation programs. The dedication of our donors, from climbing the CN Tower to advocating for wildlife in their daily actions, inspires us to work harder to raise and spend funds responsibly.
