Save a fox
Save a Fox Rescue does not breed foxes. Their team rescues them and takes care of their health issues, spays or neuters them and finds them good homes. They prepare for fox pups by having supplies such as formula, feeding syringes, nipples, and blankets ready for rehabilitation. When rescuing foxes over 7 weeks old, large spaces and veterinary attention is often required. Save a Fox rescues foxes that have become sick or injured and or orphaned from fur farms, generally the foxes that are not seen as commercially viable, and have been discarded. They take in surrendered foxes that were once pets and originally came from breeders and rescue found pet foxes.
For over 30 years Trees for the Future has worked to end hunger and poverty for small holder farmers through revitalizing degraded lands. The Forest Garden Program is a simple, replicable and scalable approach with proven success. By planting specific types of fast-growing trees, fruit trees, hardwoods and food crops in a systematic manner over a four year period, families can positively change their lives forever. Forest Gardens consist of thousands of trees that provide families with sustainable food sources, livestock feed, products to sell, fuel wood and a 400% increase in their annual income in four years.
TFTF can help families escape extreme poverty by showing them how to transform their lands into Forest Gardens. To build global awareness of their solution they aim to lift a million people out of poverty using the Forest Garden Approach. Their initial goal will require working with 125,000 impoverished families to plant 500 million trees.
Since 1892 the mission of the Sierra Club Canada Foundation has been to be a voice for the earth. They work to protect and preserve the natural environment and to empower people to be stewards of the earth in their communities. At its heart, it is a grassroots organization with a “think globally, act locally” philosophy, and members are encouraged to actively contribute to environmental causes that engage or inspire them in a capacity that best suits their capabilities. The Ontario Chapter is heavily involved in protection of the Great Lakes, growing the Green Belt throughout the Niagara and Peel Regions and fostering the growth and availability of renewable energy.
