Canadian Wildlife Federation (CWF) is celebrating World Wildlife Day on Mar. 3 with the launch of a new campaign to inspire personal action projects for conservation.
“CWF is calling on Canadians to do more for wildlife,” said Rick Bates, CEO of CWF. “The United Nations has proclaimed Mar. 3 as the international day to celebrate and raise awareness of the world’s wild animals and plants. On this day the international focus is on life below water and the critical issues facing marine species.
CWF has been at the forefront of North Atlantic Right Whale conservation efforts and will continue to encourage Canadians to report sightings of marine species in distress and advocate to ensure that every effort to protect these animals from entanglement and ship strikes is prioritized.
As migration season approaches and the whales return to Canadian waters this is an urgent call to action that must continue beyond World Wildlife Day. With this goal in mind, CWF will continue to build the momentum for a broad range of conservation efforts as we approach National Wildlife Week in Canada April 7-14.
CWF is pleased to announce that the theme of the 2019 National Wildlife Week campaign is One person One Promise. Canadians are invited to visit NationalWildlifeWeek.com to sign up for more information about the many ways to protect our country’s biodiversity. We have many success stories to share and many challenges to overcome. But together I believe we can make a difference to the kind of legacy we leave behind.”
