Wildlands League: Ontario Initiatives Aimed At Preserving Beluga Whales

This year the K.M. Hunter Charitable Foundation will be supporting some of Wildlands League marine initiatives which will protect one of Ontario’s most biodiverse areas.

Known as Weeneebayko in Cree or as Western Hudson Bay and James Bay. This area has extremely fertile waters containing a rich diversity of invertebrates and it’s home to over 170 species of geese, ducks & shorebirds, the most southern population of polar bears in the world.

Working with Indigenous Nations, ENGOs, and the federal government to establish National Marine Conservation Areas, these efforts will also protect over 55,000 beluga whales which make up about one-third of the world population for the species.
