Oceans North Canada


Oceans North Canada promotes science- and community-based conservation of Canada’s Arctic Ocean and the resulting well-being of indigenous Arctic residents who rely upon its natural wealth. Working with Arctic residents in Canada, we support science-based policies consistent with indigenous land claims and traditional practices for sustainable commercial fishing, environmentally responsible offshore hydrocarbon development and oil spill standards, and appropriate Arctic shipping safety rules.

Led by The Pew Charitable Trusts in partnership with Ducks Unlimited Canada, Oceans North Canada includes Canadian and U.S. staff that work closely with their colleagues and marine science experts at The Pew Charitable Trusts to promote northern solutions in the North American Arctic from Davis Strait to Bering Strait.

About Ducks Unlimited Canada

Ducks Unlimited Canada is a national, private, nonprofit organization that has been committed to wetlands conservation for more than 65 years. Its projects are as diverse as the vast Canadian landscape, from working in the prairie potholes to the boreal forests and Arctic coasts. Ducks Unlimited Canada specializes in on-the-ground, research-based projects that are supported by thousands of Canadian volunteers, members and staff. Their track record allows them to aptly bill themselves as “Canada’s Conservation Company.”
