Wildlife Preservation Canada (WPC) saves animals on the brink of extinction. Since 1985, WPC has been saving critically endangered species – species whose numbers in the wild are so low that a great deal more than habitat protection is required to recover them. WPC is collaborative and facilitates multi-partner recovery programs for maximum conservation impact.
WPC is a founding member of the multi-partner Working Group for the Conservation of Ontario Turtles (WGCOT). The goal of WGCOT is to support the implementation of priority recovery actions for Ontario’s freshwater turtles by fostering communication, collaboration, and landscape-scale conservation planning among turtle conservation practitioners.
