We are poised to reverse a centuries’ old trend of habitat loss in southern Ontario.

Since 2000, when the visionary Big Picture "healthy ecosystems" strategy was developed by Carolinian Canada, there have been significant changes in land use, land planning and ecosystem health on the landscape. We also have a better understanding of the relationships between healthy environments (natural infrastructure), healthy economies and healthy people. So the time is ripe to update the Big Picture. The Big Picture Collaborative is bringing together leaders from diverse sectors to establish clear common goals, and to work closely with mutually reinforcing activities to re-establish healthy ecosystems and communities in the Carolinian Zone of Ontario.

We invite you to join the discussion to map out the next critical step towards restoring healthy landscapes in Canada’s deep south. Sincerely,

Don Pearson
Chair, Carolinian Canada
