  4. Biodiversity Conservancy International (BCI) in 2011 took on the restoration and reclamation of the Pinhey sand dune, a unique, rare, and rapidly disappearing sand dune habitat in Ottawa, Ontario. Without this effort to save it, the dune would disappear completely within 10-15 years, and a number of species would also become extinct locally. The conservation project is one of a number of activities undertaken by BCI.
