value and support conservation efforts of our stakeholders and encourage individuals to become involved at a local level. Wildlife Week, from April 5 to 11, is an annual program created by CWF to celebrate the country’s natural beauty and support its conservation. Originally proclaimed in 1947, it falls on the birthdate of the late Jack Miner, who is credited with saving the Canada goose from extinction.canada goose norge butikker

Friday would mark Miner’s 150th birthday. In honour of his contributions to Canada’s conservation movement, this week’s theme is “Wild Migrations.” The CWF will use this week to highlight Canadian migrating species and their journeys.

Additionally, the wild migrations map is available free of charge in partnership with Canadian Geographic. This educational program sends a floor map of North America to schools, camps and youth programs across the country.

Students can walk on the map, 10.7 metres by 7.9 metres in dimension, learning scientifically researched and satellite tracked migration routes of 20 at risk species that call Canada home.
