CPAWS: Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society

I have discovered and will be adding CPAWS to my favorite environmental sites links.  The following welcome email that I received summarizes what they are all about:

Dear Eldy,

Thank you for signing on to Protect the Prairie to help keep Canada’s native grasslands safe!

And thank you for agreeing to receive updates from CPAWS, one of the groups partnering on this campaign. Let me tell you a little bit more about us.

CPAWS is Canada’s only nation-wide charity dedicated exclusively to protecting our public land and water. With the help of people like you, we’ve grown from a handful of volunteers nearly 50 years ago to a nation-wide charity with over 50,000 supporters.

CPAWS represents people who care about the future of our amazing natural world and the wildlife in it – from the endangered Prairie Swift Fox to the iconic Woodland Caribou. From the grasslands up into the mountains, across our Boreal forests and far out into the ocean, CPAWS is working with governments, industry, indigenous peoples and local communities to create new parks and other protected areas, and to ensure that existing parks are well-managed.

Our vision is to keep at least half of Canada’s public land and water wild – forever.

CPAWS has 13 chapters from coast to coast to coast and we’ve played a lead role in establishing two-thirds of Canada’s protected areas. You can visit our website to see what we’re up to and to learn more about what we do.

We’ll be sending you updates a few times a month. You can unsubscribe at any time by following the unsubscribe link in each email we send.

Thanks again for your help, and welcome to the CPAWS community!
