Thanks to the support from people like you, Earthroots was able to achieve numerous conservation victories in 2014:
Grassy Narrows – We convinced EACOM, one of Ontario's largest lumber companies, to avoid using conflict wood from Grassy Narrows. Read the article in The Star here.
Temagami – Earthroots and our partners brought all old growth logging in Temagami to a standstill for six months with a request for an Individual Environmental Assessment.
Wolf Lake – Mining claims in the Wolf Lake Forest Reserve began expiring for the first time in 15 years thanks to pressure from our Wolf Lake Coalition. Visit the Save Wolf Lake website here.
Wolves – We re-launched the Wolves Ontario campaign to build on past successes for improved grey and eastern wolf management (look for our new Wolves Ontario website in 2015!).
Oak Ridges Moraine – Through major media coverage, Earthroots brought much needed attention to the issue of contaminated soil being dumped on the Moraine. Read the article in The Star here.
Tools for Change – Earthroots and our partners hosted 20 training workshops and through the program over 400 people developed their skills to advocate for social and environmental justice this year. Visit the Tools for Change website here.
Thank you for your support - we wish you and yours all the best in the New Year!
