When we do things to change our environment, like build houses and roads, it gets harder and harder for animals to find the habitat they need to survive. Will you help them by being a Habitat Hero?
A Habitat Hero is someone who helps animals by giving them shelter, food, water, or a safe place to nest. In this Mission, you’ll find out how to make a toad-ally awesome toad house, help a bird build a nest, and learn how to make 6 other mini habitats that animals will go wild for!
Check out these awesome habitats you can make when you accept the Habitat Hero Mission!
Did you know that you probably live near one of Canada’s most important animal habitats?
The Ontario Greenbelt surrounds cities like Hamilton and Toronto, as well as Durham, York, Peel, and Niagara Region. It’s home to 2 million acres of protected forests, wetlands, urban river valleys, and farmlands and was designated in 2005 to help preserve important greenspaces around an area growing really quickly. But it does so much more than that. It creates places to live, work, and play, and it helps keep the outdoors awesome for everyone! By building your own backyard habitat your helping make the greenbelt (and other important greenspaces all over!) more accessible to the animals that might need a little help getting from one spot to the next.
