Since 1989, the EHJV partnership has worked to secure and restore critical and associated wetland and upland habitat in Canada’s six eastern provinces. Although the EHJV partnership became official in 1989, work actually began between 1986 and 1988 with the development of important first-step projects– these first-step projects set the stage for larger projects and are included in the overall EHJV accomplishments.
Accomplishments to date include:
- Over $616 million (cash and in-kind) has been invested in on-the ground habitat projects
- Nearly 854,000 hectares of important wetland and associated upland habitat has been secured for waterfowl, other migratory birds, wildlife and people
- More than 276,000 hectares have been restored
- 55 million hectares have been influenced from stewardship (landowner-partnered projects)
