News and views on conservation in Canada, and updates from CPAWS chapters across the country.
I invite you to watch and to find out why now is such a critical time to support CPAWS in helping to protect more of our public lands, oceans, and freshwater.
This week, a number of CPAWS staff are at the 2017 Canadian Parks Conference in Banff National Park, co-hosting a workshop with senior decision-makers on how to achieve the international protected area targets, giving presentations, and fostering relationships with government officials, Indigenous leaders, and other key people and organizations involved in conservation.
We have a small but dedicated team across Canada that invests much more time and resources than they probably should, yet our results speak for themselves. When we close the office for the holidays, it will be well-deserved, but it won’t mean that we don’t eat, drink and sleep conservation during that time.
Over the past seven years, I’ve been proud to lead a great group of conservationists who are passionate, dedicated and work hard to protect ecosystems on land and in oceans across Canada. 2016 has only reinforced this pride for me – and it should be a source of pride for our donors and supporters too.
While the discussions in some of the ranges are extremely complex, like in the Little Smoky in Alberta today, there are people able to think differently about the problem and able to find solutions.
