AWA Wilderness & Wildlife Defenders: Wild prairie grasslands or gas wells and pipelines?

November 24, 2012

As we reflect on 2012 and AWA’s 2012 conservation priorities and progress, we will be providing updates on issues of concern. For four years, we’ve been keeping you up-to-date on Suffield National Wildlife Area and this very question: What will it be, wild prairie grasslands or 1,275 new Cenovus gas wells and 220 kilometres of new pipelines? Well, we still don’t know and we hope that with help from you, letters to federal Minister of the Environment Peter Kent will help remind him just how important this area is to native biodiversity and the protection of this significant region in Alberta.


With rare exception cattle ranchers have been the best of guardians of the land entrusted to them. May we continue to be conscientious caretakers of this precious resource and hand it on to another generation unspoiled.
