MONTREAL, Sept. 4 /CNW Telbec/ - The Canadian Parks and Wilderness
Society (CPAWS) and the Ecomuseum Zoo are thrilled to join forces to pursue
their common objective of conserving the natural habitat of woodland caribou,
a threatened species throughout Canada considered vulnerable in Quebec.
The new partnership will be officially launched during the first annual
Caribou Day, an exciting family event to be held at the Ecomuseum Zoo.
Representatives from both organizations will be on hand to discuss the
partnership and the status of woodland caribou in Quebec, including the
importance of creating large protected areas to ensure its survival.
WHAT : Caribou Day 2008, a family event featuring games, contests, and
presentations. A great opportunity to visit the Ecomuseum's more than
90 species of native fauna - including caribou of course - and to have
