We have been on the front lines 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 campaign focus beyond the Temagami issue.

Earthroots  consists of two separate organizations: Earthroots Fund, a charitable  organization (registration #135165140 RR0001) that engages in public  education and research, and Earthroots Coalition, a non-profit  organization that engages in advocacy and action.  Our campaigns  focus on achieving meaningful protection for Ontario's threatened  wilderness areas and wildlife species.  Earthroots acts on behalf of  12,000 supporters across the country.

Earthroots is a strong advocate and agitator for wilderness  preservation in Ontario, combining grassroots campaign strategies with  effective research and educational programs.  Since 1986, we've used 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 year to advocate for better environmental protection and achieve conservation victories!
