The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) is a national land conservation organization that uses the best available science to help identify the places where it works. Produced in partnership with TELUS, this microsite explores the exciting tools and technologies that allow NCC to conserve Canada’s natural landscapes and the species at risk that live in them, while allowing Canadians to connect with these special places.


Live Cam and Time Lapse Videos

Spot the shorebirds at Johnson’s Mills! Each year 30 per cent of the world’s population of semipalmated sandpipers stop here to fuel up. They will double their weight before continuing their three-day, non-stop migration to South America.

Please note, the ideal time to spot the birds is two hours before and two hours after high tide.

Drone Footage

Drones help give a bird’s-eye view of the places where NCC works, and enable NCC conservation staff to measure progress in current NCC conservation areas.

NCC uses some of the best available technology in its conservation work in the field, online and in its offices, to help identify its places worth protecting. Read more about the technology that powers NCC and discover how you can use the latest apps and tech to connect with nature in new ways.
