Foundations

Saving Canada’s species at risk is a monumental task. Wildlife Preservation Canada believes that our success cannot be achieved without strong partnerships and generous funding.

We want to thank the foundations and organisations below for their investment in our hands-on species recovery. To see a full list of our supporters over the years see our Annual Reports.

The Westaway Charitable Foundation

The Westaway Charitable Foundation has been a generous Wildlife Preservation Canada supporter for over 20-years contributing to our direct, hands-on care and recovery efforts for endangered species. Beginning in 2002, the Westaway Foundation has provided valuable unrestricted support allowing WPC to direct the funds to the most urgent needs as identified by our Action Plan (updated annually). 

Peter Westaway spent his early summers in Georgian Bay where he developed a profound interest in the wildlife of the area. “Many of the species I knew there back in the 1950’s have disappeared or are endangered. For example,the Eastern Spotted Turtle, once very common in Georgian Bay, is now found only at Long Point on Lake Erie. We feel it imperative to do whatever we can to preserve species such as  the Eastern Fox Snake, which are endangered, and the work of WPC strives to do exactly that”.

Through their Foundation, Peter and Brigitte Westaway support a variety of health, environmental and arts organizations contributing to critical projects/programs across the country. We are grateful to the Westaway CharitableFoundation for their years of support and commitment to Canada’s endangered species.
