In an average year, Canada mourns the loss of over 100 adults and children due to agricultural fatalities. Canada’s agricultural sector is one of the most hazardous industries in which to work.
Producer groups, non-profits, government bodies, industry and researchers formed what is now the Canadian Agricultural Safety Association (CASA) in 1993 to respond to issues of health and safety in agriculture.
As a national, non-profit organization, CASA promotes farm safety in the agricultural sector. CASA works with partners in government, business, and farming organizations across the country to support initiatives that equip producers, their families and their workers with the information and tools needed to make farms a safe place to live, work and play.
CASA is governed by a seven-person Board of Directors drawn from a membership base that includes individuals, organizations, governments and businesses.

"Explore.org hosts live streaming videos from all over the world allowing learners to observe a variety of animals in their natural habitats.
The learning extends beyond the classroom offering a portal into the natural world with authentic exposure to a variety of species.
Applications of explore.org can include creating a center activity in which students observe animals in their natural settings to gather and record data as citizen scientists.
As the introduction to an animal research project, this resource can ignite curiosity and encourage further investigation.
Additionally, explore.org can serve as a gateway to compare and contrast different animals among diverse habitats." (AASL)
