Position: Director of Campaigns
Location: Toronto, Ontario
Earthroots is a grassroots conservation organization dedicated to the protection of Ontario’s wilderness, wildlife and watersheds, through research, education and action. We have been on the frontlines of wilderness conservation since 1986, when our predecessor organization, the Temagami Wilderness Society (TWS) was formed. The TWS was created to fight for the preservation of rare old growth white and red pine forests in the Temagami region of northern Ontario. After campaign success in the Temagami region, the organization changed its name to Earthroots in 1991, in order to broaden the organization’s focus beyond the Temagami issue.
Earthroots is a strong advocate and agitator for wilderness preservation in Ontario. We combine grassroots campaign strategies with effective research and educational programs. Since 1986, Earthroots has used its grassroots expertise to organize, educate and mobilize the public, conduct successful media events, carry out wilderness research projects and ensure proper forest management planning.
We empower thousands of Canadians each and every year to advocate for better environmental protection and achieve conservation victories!
