Ecology Ottawa is urging the City of Ottawa to “rewild.”
The goal is to put a priority on the preservation of greenspace, plant of native vegetation in parks and on lawns and “naturalize” lands throughout the urban area.
...The environmental group wants local citizens to sign a petition and push local politicians to commit to the principles of rewilding. Signatories “urge council to take ambitious action to conserve and restore nature in Ottawa by making bold financial and political commitments to rewild our city.”
