Episode 13- Project Swallowtail and Habitat Renewal with Dr. Pete Ewins

Pete Ewins is the former Director of Canada’s Endangered Species Program for the World Wildlife Fund with a focus on flagship species conservation in globally significant regions. Since retiring he has engaged with Project Swallowtail to help citizens learn how to restore habitat in your own backyard. Pete is passionate and engaged about shifting from individual species rescue to creating better environments for all life.

Pete’s work with Project Swallowtail brings education and awareness to your front door. This is a collaborative effort to connect communities street by street and empower residents to restore nature in west Toronto. This pilot project will also be used to develop a framework for replication in neighbourhoods across Canada.
