7:00 pm, Monday, March 12, 2007
Library and Archives Canada
395 Wellington Street, Ottawa
Come and learn how the woodland caribou in Ontario are on the road to
extinction and what can be done about it.
Evan Ferrari, Parks Program Director of CPAWS Wildlands League will give
an illustrated talk on this iconic species. In the past century almost 50% of
their range in Ontario has been lost.
"We are hosting this event because woodland caribou need our help" said
Ken Buchan, President of CPAWS Ottawa Valley. "Our logging and development
practices have put them on the brink of extinction".
This event is part of CPAWS efforts to increase Northern Boreal protected
areas in Ontario.
Many Canadian artists and literary giants, such as Robert Bateman,
Margaret Atwood, James Raffan, Thomas King and Dr. David Suzuki, among others,
are now supporting our efforts.
