Here is an opportunity to participate in an online survey for the Wilderness Committee to share:
Want to shape the future of wild Canada?
Sometimes I like to sit back, close my eyes, and imagine the future of wilderness and wildlife in the world – especially right here in Canada. I think back to the awe-inspiring old-growth forests I have witnessed in Clayoquot Sound, and the memories of the wild rushing Upper Pitt River, its blue-green waters punctuated with crimson red sockeye salmon.
I can still hear the drum beats of countless demonstrations I have attended against logging, mining and oil companies that step on First Nations’ rights and prevent them from keeping their lands and waters clean and healthy.
This past Saturday I spent the day with my wife and grandkids walking along a wild stretch of the Burrard Inlet, so clear and blue on a sunny day. I thought about what I would give, and what I would do to ensure an oil spill never ever happens here.
I have come to the conclusion that our wild future is something I am willing to do just about anything to protect – and I figure that you feel the same way too.
But what is the best way forward?
The Wilderness Committee is currently creating our strategic plan for the next three to five years, and we need your help. We’ve got a shortonline survey for you to fill out to help us evaluate how we’re doing and figure out how best to move forward. The survey is only ten questions long, so it won’t take too much of your time.
We are excited about our future as one of the nation’s leading advocates for Canadian wilderness and wildlife. We want to hear from you – our members and supporters – to help us make sure we are doing our very best in this vitally important work.
Your opinion means so much to us. Please take a few minutes from your day to help us plan for a future that protects and celebrates the biodiversity of our nation.
The deadline to complete the survey is April 15th, so please fill it out today! Thank you!
For the wild,
Joe Foy | National Campaign Director

Today’s “stone” and NaPoWriMo is: Day 94
So long the drip, drip, dripping,
The rain drops keep on dropping.
Down, down, down from cloudy sky.
The flower seeds, grass, trees cry
It’s all good.
