rare

“rare is a charitable foundation with a unique focus in Canada – it owns property and encourages long-term research on ecological restoration and monitoring and integrates this into community education programs. There is no other organization like this in Canada.

Some organizations fund research, some own property for conservation and related purposes, some focus on education about the environment. rare does all of this and does it in an important context, i.e. an urbanizing region where the threat to ecological structures and functions are greatest, the need for ecological restoration the largest, and the need for urbanites to have a place to go to both enjoy nature and understand the value of ecological research the most important.” – Dr. Stephen Murphy
