ecological change
in Canada
What can we do to increase awareness of habitat loss, invasive species, and human impact on nature?

There is no other independent organized group in Canada which is dedicated to promoting long term monitoring. This is your chance to support the work of Fragile Inheritance.

    "The 30 Years Later Project is in our view, a fitting action to carry out in the International Year of Biodiversity to the benefit of not only Canada, but larger scientific and public communities as well... We strongly encourage partner and supporting organizations to give the project the full support that it merits."

Fragile Inheritance exists to promote and support the long term study of species in their habitats, and the human & environmental effects on them.
Our mandate is to:

  • encourage the making of traditional and quantitative field observations
  • archive original field notes
  • facilitate electronic storage, retrieval, and analysis of natural history data.

In this way we will provide society with information essential for the study and understanding of gradual change in nature and the environment.
