Today, the Oak Ridges Moraine and #Greenbelt are threatened by sprawl. Take action today by signing our letter (link in bio) urging the Premier to stop sprawl in these areas for good and help protect our water, nature and communities!⠀

Over 7,000 people raised their voices by signing our petition to help stop the hunting of snapping turtles in Ontario. Your voices were heard. On Friday March 31, the government announced its decision to terminate the hunt. ⠀

Today we are thankful for your perseverance, thankful to the government for listening and thankful for snapping turtles — those amazing, clunky, long-lived creature who enrich the human experience in so many ways.🐢⠀
