The geographical area in which the Long Point Basin Land Trust operates is part of what is referred to as Carolinian Canada. Carolinian Canada is less than 1/4 of 1 percent of the whole country’s land mass and is home to more species than most other parts of Canada. There are 2200 species of plants, 107 species of trees, 27 species of reptiles, 20 species of amphibians and 400 species of birds found here. Along with this rich biodiversity is also found 25 percent of Canada’s population that make their living working in the industrial centres and on the farms that compete for the habitat that all species need.
