The David Suzuki Foundation's motto is "Solutions Are In Our Nature" which is a very fitting slogan indeed! And now, during summer and it's potentially extreme weather, you may be considering the impact of global warming, among other things. Wherever your passion is, if you feel an affinity for Mother Nature, this foundation takes a look at providing solutions for any nature related issue.

A science-based environmental organization, the David Suzuki Foundation is headquartered in Vancouver, BC, with offices in Montreal and Toronto. It is a non profit organization that is funded by close to 30,000 donors. The Foundation describes its goal as to: "Work toward balancing human needs with the Earth's ability to sustain all life. Our goal is to find and communicate practical ways to achieve that balance."

The mission of the foundation is to "protect the diversity of nature and our quality of life, now and for the future" and their vision is "that within a generation, Canadians act on the understanding that we are all interconnected and interdependent with nature".
