Teams of CPAWS and Mountain Equipment Co-op (MEC) volunteers joined creative forces this spring and went wild in the streets nationwide to raise awareness for a new wilderness protection movement.

The Big Wild, founded by CPAWS and MEC, aims to engage Canadians to take part in protecting Canada’s Big Wild places.

With rooftop campsites, people rappelling down buildings and morning canoe commutes to work, the Big Wild teams invited passers-by to add their voice to the Big Wild. Already, over 10,000 Canadians have added their voice to the Big Wild vision: ensuring at least half of Canada’s wilderness is protected.
