Launching our Oceans Report on Parliament Hill

On June 2, CPAWS and the International Conservation Caucus sponsored a reception on Parliament Hill to kick off oceans week and the release of our oceans report, Dare to be Deep: Charting Canada’s Course to 2020.

Guests enjoyed lively conversation, sustainable seafood from The Whalesbone, and the opportunity to pose with our new whale mascot! We also heard from Sabine Jessen, National Director of our Oceans Program, MP Joyce Murray, Chair, International Conservation Caucus, and Danielle Monosson, First Secretary, Economic Section, Embassy of the United States. It was a whale of a time!
