Open Letter to AB Energy Minister: Defer New Leases within Threatened Little Smoky Caribou Range

February 6, 2013

An open letter to Alberta Minister of Energy Ken Hughes, requesting deferral of planned energy lease sales as a step towards responsible habitat management for this caribou population at imminent risk of local extinction.

If I were asked to illustrate a scene of utter serenity and peace, I would choose a picture of a mother grizzly wandering across flower-covered slopes with two small cubs gamboling at her heels. This is truly a part of the deep tranquility that is the wilderness hallmark.
