    "The Canadian Wildlife Foundation provides funding for wildlife habitat
conservation and the wise use of wildlife resources in Canada," said Wade

created the foundation. "By supporting the innovation and initiative of
community groups, scientists and educators from across this country, we are
working together to help ensure healthy wildlife populations and a stronger
environmental ethic among Canadians."

charitable non-profit organizations for wildlife and habitat conservation

    The Canadian Wildlife Foundation is a charitable organization established

the renewable natural resources of Canada are economic, social, recreational,
and aesthetic assets that must be restored, wisely used, and perpetuated for
posterity. The Canadian Wildlife Foundation Board of Trustees is responsible
for evaluating applications and making funding decisions.
