Nature and Climate Grant Program

Nature-based climate solutions use the unique powers of nature to both capture and store carbon, which helps mitigate climate change, and safeguard species. WWF-Canada’s Nature and Climate Grant Program, presented in partnership with Aviva Canada, helps communities and Indigenous organizations restore degraded lands and shorelines in order to improve habitats and capture carbon.

Go Wild School Grants

This fall, students and educators were invited to share their best ideas to help nature thrive at school and on campus. From creative proposals that plant and protect, count or train with citizen science, conduct research and development, and celebrate and educate, it’s clear that when nature calls, our schools answer. Check out the 56 projects from schools across Canada that are going wild with a WWF-Canada Go Wild School Grant, helping nature thrive where they live and learn.

Do you have an idea to help restore or create habitat? Are you interested in leading a project that gets your school community more involved in environmental action? Your next chance to apply for funding to kick-start your school project is September 2022.
