Thank you for taking the time to fill out our survey. Your opinion is important to us. It not only helps us to understand your personal perspective on plastics and their impacts on waterways and wildlife, but it helps us to ensure we report back to you with the relevant impact our programs and activities are having.
Spread the Word!
As a non-profit organization, we have limited resources to get this survey into the hands of conservation-minded Canadians such as yourself! Our resources can only get us part of the way there. You can help us by sending this survey to your friends, family and/or colleagues via e-mail or social media.
Donate to the Cause
The Canadian Wildlife Federation is committed to understanding the extent to which plastics are infiltrating our waterways and affecting the wildlife that live there. Your donation will directly support CWF’s work and programs that strive so effectively to conserve Canadian aquatic species and habitats. Programs such as:
- The work of regional networks and specialists who respond to marine animals when they are in distress or even dead.
- Partnering with McGill University on research to understand the extent of the impacts of microplastics on wildlife in the St. Lawrence River.
- Studying the patterns of entangled Steller Sea Lions off Vancouver Island in order to identify and eliminate the cause of these terrible situations.
Each donation, no matter how small, will make a difference.

Your endorsement is needed for a national petition!
We have an environmental disaster that is quietly happening to one of Canada’s greatest natural heritages …the lakes, rivers and oceans that make up our precious waterways! Plastic is everywhere. It makes up the bags at our grocery stores and the lids of our coffee cups. But most of us don’t think about where these plastic items go when we’re through with them. We encourage you to sign the Plastics Reduction Petition to urge the Government of Canada to continue to address this issue and further move Canada away from single-use plastics. #StopSingleUse
