What’s Happening Under the Water? How to Start an Aquatic Conservation Project

View the webinar

There’s a myriad of ways to support species and habitat needs on corporate lands. Conservation teams may feel confident in their abilities to plant native plants, build a pollinator garden or install nest boxes — but when it comes to projects that involve aquatic species or habitats, what’s happening under the water can seem much murkier.  

With World Water Day coming up on March 22, now is a great time to start thinking about how to build a conservation project that supports aquatic species and habitats. In this webinar, we’ll share an overview of the different kinds of aquatic conservation projects – from protecting fish to restoring riparian habitats and more. You’ll gain insight into what it takes to start and maintain an aquatic project, supported by specific examples from several long-running and successful projects at Ontario Power Generation’s Wesleyville site. 

What you’ll learn: 

  • The different types of aquatic conservation projects, including species protection, habitat restoration and invasive species management 
  • How to get started on an aquatic conservation project 
  • Tips for handling challenges that may come along with these types of projects 

Who should take this webinar: 

  • Corporate conservation teams that are interested in starting an aquatic conservation project 
  • Current members of an aquatic conservation team looking for tips on maintaining their work 
  • Anyone who wants to learn more about protecting aquatic species and habitats
