TORONTO, Nov. 1, 2011 /CNW/ - It really is better to give than to receive. Many Canadians are looking forward to sharing their gifts this holiday season. Rather than a traditional present wrapped and placed under the tree, they say they'd prefer to know a gift was made to charity.

A  new Ipsos Reid poll, conducted on behalf of the Nature Conservancy of Canada, finds more than seven out of ten (74%) Canadians agree that knowing someone has made a donation in their name in lieu of a holiday gift makes them feel good.

The Nature Conservancy of Canada, the only environmental charity given an A rating by MoneySense magazine, is offering an assortment of symbolic gifts that are both unique and meaningful. Gifts of Canadian Nature (giftsofnature.ca) feature five iconic Canadian species and help protect wild spaces from coast to coast, right in our own backyards.

The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) is the nation's leading not-for-profit, private land conservation organization, working to protect our most important natural areas and the species they sustain.  Since 1962 we have helped to protect more than 2.2 million acres (890,300 hectares) nationwide.  www.natureconservancy.ca
