Access to practical tools & resources to help Canadians better understand and conserve wetlands.


The Endangered Species Recovery Fund (ESRF) is a collaborative effort led by Environment Canada and World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Canada to save Canada's wildlife at risk. The ESRF sponsors high-priority conservation projects to assist the recovery and protection of endangered Canadian wildlife and their natural habitats. Since 1988, the ESRF has provided more than $6.5 million to wildlife research and education projects by scientists and conservation advocates.

The ESRF supports initiatives that contribute to development of recovery strategies, such as collection of baseline information about the threats to a species' survival, identification of the critical habitat of a species and what is needed to ensure it is conserved, or research that will fill other gaps in information. When the necessary recovery actions are known, the ESRF will support action-oriented projects that address specific steps toward species recovery. These steps may address protection of critical habitat or applied research that builds on existing knowledge of species ecological and conservation requirements.
