About Women for Nature

“In celebration of our 75th anniversary in 2014, Nature Canada aims to accelerate their positive impact on nature with the collaborative partnership of 75 women of influence. Women for Nature is the collaborative voices of Canadian women with vision – women of influence who chose to demonstrate their passion for nature and pass their values on to others to drive change. Women for Nature is a philanthropic initiative comprised of professional women from across Canada – this unique partnership of motivated and influential women champion Nature Canada’s work to their network of colleagues and friends. Together they will be more effective in our efforts to save wildlife, protect nature and inspire young leaders for nature. Nature Canada was founded in 1939 to honour Mabel Frances Whittemore, an educator and nature lover whose main goal in life was to share her passion for nature with others.  Their mission is to protect and conserve wildlife and habitats in Canada by engaging people and advocating on behalf of nature. They are a member-based non-profit organization of 40,000 supporters and more than 350 naturalist organizations across Canada”.
