It’s a wrap for the 2014 MEC Big Wild Challenge!

Thank you!  Together, 2014 MEC Big Wild Challenge-takers ran, walked, hiked, biked and paddled to raise over $70,000 for CPAWS’ wilderness conservation campaigns across Canada.

These funds are being used to support:

Yukon Territory – Protecting the magnificent Peel River watershed from industrial development

British Columbia -- Establishing a new national park in the highly endangered South Okanagan Similkameen region
Alberta – Helping to keep Jasper's Spirit Wild! Standing up against commercial development in Jasper National Park.

Manitoba -- Gaining new protected areas for boreal woodland caribou

Ontario – Protecting nature for Rouge National Urban Park

Ottawa Valley – Teaching young people about the natural world right at their doorstep

Quebec – Protecting the Magpie, one of National Geographic’s top 10 whitewater rivers in the world, from hydro-electric development

Nova Scotia - Protecting the Birch Cove Lakes, Halifax's near-urban wilderness

New Brunswick -- Standing up for the province’s at-risk old growth forests

From coast to coast to coast, CPAWS is continuing to speak out for Canada’s wilderness due to the generous support of people like you!

See you at the 2015 MEC Big Wild Challenge! Registration will open in early spring.
