AWA Letter to PM Harper re Establishment of Govenlock as a NWA

June 26, 2013

Last year, the Canadian government announced the divestiture of the former PFRA community pastures. The PFRA community pastures contain a substantial amount of the remaining natural grassland in Canada. AWA is urging the Government to maintain Canada’s commitment to grassland conservation and establish the Govenlock Pasture as a National Wildlife Area (NWA) under the management of Environment Canada. As a NWA, Govenlock would continue to contribute to the market economy through the provision of grazing opportunities to the local ranching industry.

I love bears and the wildlands where they live. Bears have fascinated me, scared me ‘til my heart pounded, and inspired me… They have helped me to learn about the diversity of life on earth and how nature works.
