Alberta Wilderness & Wildlife Defenders: Help Stop New Energy Leasing in Endangered Mountain Caribou Ranges

May 22, 2014

The Alberta government plans to sell new energy leases in endangered mountain caribou ranges. Last week, the Calgary Herald and Edmonton Journal editorial boards plus all opposition parties called for a halt to this leasing. I am hoping that you can help: please ask Alberta’s Energy and ESRD Ministers to halt new lease sales and commit to range plans that protect remaining habitat and restore the forests the caribou need to survive.

Carolyn Campbell, AWA Conservation Specialist


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.
