My time at CPAWS: what I learned during my internship

I started 2017 as a college student nearing graduation, and I found myself both thrilled and nervous about the task of finding my first internship. CPAWS became my first choice, as my top priority was to gain experience working for a non-profit organization while developing my skill set in the marketing communications field. After an exciting six weeks, my internship at CPAWS is coming to an end, and it was beyond what I could have anticipated.

How many people know the truth about what is needed to maintain our wild animals, plants, clean air, clean water, and other values that keep us humans alive and healthy? Still not enough, apparently, as the last global protected areas target that most countries of the world signed on to in 2010 (the so-called Aichi target) was to protect 17% of their land area by 2020.

Jasper National Park needs your help

Spending precious time and resources fighting infrastructure projects which should never have been proposed in the first place is a frustrating but necessary part of our job at CPAWS. However, I'm always encouraged by the passion Canadians show in defending our national parks from harm. Over and over, Canadians have stood up and said no to unnecessary and harmful development in our parks, and yes to keeping them wild.

Conservation, Parks Canada, and the Federal Budget
