TORONTO, Nov. 16, 2015 /CNW/ - WWF-Canada and Love Nature, a Blue Ant Media brand, are pleased to announce a new content partnership that will see the two organizations joining forces to advocate for water conservation awareness and to promote the importance of freshwater in Canada. The two partners will launch a joint digital content hub on WWF.ca, drawing attention to the nation's ongoing water conservation issues and offering stories that detail each one of the country's 25 watersheds with stunning photography. WWF-Canada will also act as title sponsor of Love Nature' s programming block, WWF Water Wednesdays with David Miller. Miller will host the programming block every Wednesday night at 8 p.m. ET/PT as of this Wednesday.
"WWF-Canada and Love Nature have a shared interest in connecting Canadians with the beauty and wonder of nature, while also shining a light on the environmental issues in our constantly changing world," said Laura Pearce, VP, Marketing and Digital, Blue Ant Media. "We are thrilled to work with WWF-Canada to help raise awareness about water health and to engage with our audiences on how we can find solutions together."

Wildlife and nature fans will enjoy programming that allows them to explore water and aquatic life around the world and learn how it relates to Canada's water issues.
"Canada is home to one-fifth of the world's freshwater supply and we have a responsibility to steward this valuable resource," said David Miller, President and CEO, WWF-Canada. "We hope that WWF Water Wednesdays on Love Nature, will inspire people to learn how our lakes, rivers and oceans are an important part of our ecosystem that need to be protected from the threats like pollution, habitat loss and fragmentation."
