… is to go from 12% to ≥ 30% by 2030
Joining a worldwide effort by governments, scientists and conservation groups . . .
let’s do our part locally to make sure at least 30% of natural habitat is conserved for biodiversity and wildlife. Take the Nature Stewards pledge!
What happens when you sign up
- You make a voluntary pledge to conserve ≥ 30% of your property for wildlife habitat benefits and get a Nature Stewards sign. (From farms and large lots to less than 1/2 acre parcels, every effort is recognized.)
- Our experienced volunteers can visit your property, do a walkabout with you, and suggest ways to conserve and improve things for wildlife habitat and biodiversity on your land.
- We offer practical resources, incentives and helpful tips. (Many actions are quite simple yet highly effective.)
- Becoming a Nature Steward can be as simple as you like and suited to any lifestyle, budget or space.
- See our Nature Stewards pamphlet (pdf). Share it with others.
Even small actions can make a difference!

Thanks to our donors & funders, GaLTT’s Nature Stewards program offers resources and the help of experienced volunteers who can visit your property and help with practical ideas and insights for conserving and enhancing nature.
If you’re interested in having us visit and seeing if your property has met or is on the way to contributing to this habitat conservation challenge, please fill out the contact form on this page.
PLEASE NOTE that the program is popular, so we have a waiting list for visits. We will get in touch with you in the weeks ahead.
In the meantime, check out our Resources page and learn more about what you can do right now to help nature on your property.
Coast Salish Peoples have lived on Gabriola and throughout these Salish Sea “gulf islands” for thousands of years. Today, we are learning how to “Indigenize” our thinking and relationship with our natural world and the deep interconnections First Nations have always maintained with culture and nature.
We are honoured and grateful to live in the territory of the Snuneymuxw First Nation.
