The Nature Conservancy of Canada

Nature Conservancy of Canada Logo
Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) has a long history with the Conservation Data Centre (CDC). NCC was one of the original partners in the formation of the CDC. The relationship has been strengthened by the establishment of a local NCC office and reinvigorated national offices of both NCC in Toronto and NatureServe (CDC’s) in Ottawa. The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) protects areas of natural diversity for their intrinsic value and for the benefit of our children and those after them.

The Native Plant Society of Saskatchewan

The Native Plant Society (NPSS) has been a long-time supporter of the Conservation Data Centre (CDC). The NPSS has been using CDC information and promoting, to its members, the value of contributing information back to the CDC. Recently, NPSS has taken on a co-management role with the CDC and strengthened this relationship even further. The Native Plant Society of Saskatchewan strives to promote understanding and conservation of native plants and their ecosystems by facilitating communication, research, and education. The NPSS is a non-profit, member-driven organization that believes in achieving goals through active, impartial dialogue with all stakeholders.

The Saskatchewan Invasive Species Council (SISC) and the SKCDC began a new partnership in 2014. The SISC is a not-for-profit association of professionals from federal, provincial, and municipal governments, as well as industry and non-government organizations. They enable collaboration and work in partnerships to guard Saskatchewan against invasive alien invaders by providing leadership, knowledge and expertise as well as a forum to engage, enable and empower citizens to take action on invasive species issues.

The Botanical Assessment Working Group

A botanical working group was initiated by the Saskatchewan Conservation Data Centre (SKCDC) to establish a provincial body of botanical experts to advise on species rankings. The purpose of this working group is to reassess current information on the distribution, ecology, and conservation status of Saskatchewan’s rare and endangered plant species.
