Canadians Willing to Make Sacrifices to Recover Caribou in our National Parks

October 3, 2012

Wild Lands Advocate update, August 2012, by Nigel Douglas. A recently-released Parks Canada report reveals the findings that Canadians support renewed efforts to recover threatened caribou in the Rocky Mountain National Parks, even if that means some compromises have to be made.

“AWA hopes that Parks Canada will remember these findings when it decides whether or not to allow future developments, such as Jasper’s planned expansion of the Marmot Basin ski hill into caribou range. Ecological integrity remains the priority of Canadians, even if that means restricting development.”

We have spectacular wilderness in Alberta, much of it under some form of protection. Every square millimetre of it has had to be fought for - will always have to be fought for, forever and ever. The struggle to retain and repair wilderness is conducted not just by a few individuals, but by large numbers of committed people, from all walks of life, all working in various ways toward the same end. We need to be grateful to all of them.
