CLOCA Supports Canada’s Protected Areas Target through Large Contributions to a National Goal
Central Lake Ontario Conservation Authority (CLOCA) and Ontario Nature are pleased to announce that a total of 2,458.2 hectares of the Conservation Authority’s Conservation Areas now officially contribute towards Canada’s goal of protecting 30 per cent of our lands and waters by 2030. Canada endorsed the goal, known as the 30 by 30 goal, as part of the landmark Global Biodiversity Framework at the United Nations Biodiversity Conference (COP15) in Montreal last December.
An assessment of the 11 Conservation Areas, conducted in partnership with Ontario Nature, determined that they met strict national standards for the protection of biodiversity, qualifying as Protected Areas. Click here to read the full media release.
