What You Can Do to Help Nature

From starting a native plant garden, to becoming a Living Planet Leader, there’s something for everyone eager to make a difference for nature with WWF-Canada!

Living Planet @ School

From planting native plants for habitat to keeping litter out of it, to switching off for Earth Hour and celebrating National Sweater Day, as a primary or secondary school teacher you can call your students to take action for nature with our suite of activities throughout the school year.

As an educator, you can create an account and:

  • Register and record the hands-on actions your students take
  • Apply for a  Go Wild Grant  to kick start a project
  • Share your story of success to inspire others into action
  • Request a classroom certificate to celebrate your positive impact

Together, let’s demonstrate how the actions of each student across Canada helps build a future where people and nature thrive.

    Native Plants

WWF-Canada’s how-to hub for growing native plants and trees, re:grow provides expert guidance while helping individuals contribute to a Canada-wide effort to restore wildlife habitat. Participants can create and execute an action plan that fits their personal goals and space, from making a container garden on their balcony to attract pollinators to turning part of a schoolyard into a seed garden. People can participate on their own or with community, school, campus, workplace, club, family or friend groups. Each re:grow action is tracked to measure the program’s collective impact for nature and climate.
