A History of the Nature Conservancy of Canada

Bill Freedman

  • Elegantly written. A narrative journey across Canada's stunning landscapes and seascapes to the information encoded in our individual complements of DNA.
  • Expert author. Bill Freedman is a biologist and educator, with a long-standing commitment to the NCC, whose career has focussed on identifying and avoiding environmental problems and whose first concern is conserving the natural world.
  • Canadian success story. This history begins with a few hopeful volunteers in 1962 and extends to more than 47,000 supporters today. The book celebrates an important success story in environmental conservation, while also making clear that much more has to be done to conserve the biodiversity of Canada and the world.
  • Cross-disciplinary. Canadian biodiversity is explored in scientific, economic, and human terms.
  • Full-colour illustrations. Ten colour photographs and maps tell a visual story of Canada's unique landscapes.
