The National Wetland Conservation Fund (NWCF) supports on-the-ground activities to restore and enhance wetlands in Canada. The objectives of the fund are to:
- Restore degraded or lost wetlands on working and settled landscapes to achieve a net gain in wetland habitat area;
- Enhance the ecological functions of existing degraded wetlands;
- Scientifically assess and monitor wetland functions and ecological goods and services in order to further the above objectives to restore and/or enhance wetlands; and
- Encourage the stewardship of Canada’s wetlands by industry and the stewardship and enjoyment of wetlands by the Canadian public.
The NWCF focuses on working landscapes.
