"We are lucky to live in a province with lots of wild places and wild species - some 30,000 species of plants and animals. But this biodiversity - the variety of different habitats, and types of plants, animals, fish, insects - is in trouble.

More than 190 of Ontario's wild species are at risk. Species can become at risk due to a number of reasons. These include habitat loss, pollution, changing land use activities, as well as the spread of invasive species.

The good news is that together, we can act to protect and recover many of these species and safeguard Ontario's biodiversity."
