NGO Letter to Environment & Parks Minister on Little Smoky-Duvernay Land and Water Management Crisis and Solutions
June 17, 2015
Letter to Alberta’s Minister of Environment and Parks from 10 Alberta conservation organizations, including Alberta Wilderness Association. The groups asked to meet with the Minister to discuss solutions to long standing issues in the Little Smoky Upper Peace-Upper Athabasca region. This area is the last refuge of arctic grayling, bull trout and woodland caribou in the lower foothills ecoregion of Alberta. It is under great pressure from energy industry and timber harvest impacts, but better decisions today are possible and will greatly improve the legacy we leave to our children.
