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.
