WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT TO CONTINUE OUR CONSERVATION GOALS.


The area of Bluffer’s Park and The Bluffs is under threat of a major development project that will destroy the last remaining natural section of The Bluffs, as well as radically change the park and the beach area to the east.  We need your help to spread the word and get the message out that The Bluffs, and Bluffer’s Park are worth saving. 

So far, all expenses for this organization have come out of pocket from the two founding members.  We are having hard time coming up with the rest of the funding to make this final push, and we’re asking for all of our members to make a donation so that we may continue our conservation work.  Our goal is a fairly modest $500.  This will cover website costs, hosting fees, event fees and the printing of an educational brochure.  We need your help to make it happen!  We will continue to do our best to save this beautiful wild area, and preserve the habitat and history for the wild creatures that we all love.

The Wild Bluffs is a grassroots organization dedicated to conservation and preservation in The Scarborough Bluffs, Ontario, Canada. The Bluffs are remnants of Earth’s last ice age, and the glacial deposits are up to 70,000 years old! This is the last remaining piece of geology from The Wisconsin Glacier left on the planet. Sadly, no protection or importance was ever granted this geologically important area. Now, the last remaining natural geology of The Bluffs is under threat, and the geology and fossil records will be destroyed.

The Bluffs are also are major habitat for dozens of species of wildlife, including endangered Peregrine Falcons and Snapping Turtles.  There are thousands of animals that call The Bluffs home, including White-tailed Deer, Coyotes, Bald Eagles, Minks, Trumpeter Swans and many, many more!  It is also an important migratory route for our continent’s vanishing Monarch Butterflies, as well as many migratory birds.  Photographers and naturalists love this area, but, with further development, the wildlife here will be chased out of their homes as habitat is decreased.

Recently, we realized that there has been a serious lack of education regarding the significance of this area.  So, we have been working hard to produce an educational brochure to hand out at events, and to flyer the neighbourhood with.  There is a bit of urgency around this issue, as the approval for the first stages of this project will happen within the next few months.

Any donation, no matter how large or small would be greatly appreciated.  Please help us save this little piece of paradise.  The global citizens of future generations will thank you for preserving an important piece of geology, and an important habitat for many species of wildlife.
