Running Wild for Caribou:
The "Wild Runners" team will be raising money for Boreal caribou habitat protection. Boreal caribou are majestic creatures that live in the dense forests of Northern B.C. Despite being large creatures weighing up to 700 pounds, they are an incredibly fragile species. Changes to their forest home put them at great risk. As we speak, there is an unprecedented amount of industrial development taking place within their territory. The level of unchecked development is taking its toll on the caribou. Herd numbers are dropping quickly and could be completely wiped out if we don't act quickly. The "Wild Runners" are doing their part to help CPAWS-BC protect caribou habitat in northern B.C.
The Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society is Canada's grassroots voice for wilderness. Since 1963 we've led in creating over two-thirds of Canada's protected areas. That amounts to about half a million square kilometres - an area bigger than the entire Yukon Territory. Our vision is to keep at least half of Canada's public land and water wild.
When & Where
Coast to Cascades Grizzly Bear Initiative
Launched in September 2013, the Coast to Cascades Grizzly Bear Initiative aims to restore the five threatened grizzly bear populations in southwest British Columbia and to connect grizzly bear habitat while encouraging environmentally responsible development. We can accomplish this by protecting grizzly bears from mounting threats and stemming their loss from our wild places, safeguarding year-round ample habitat, and ensuring connectivity between grizzly bear populations.
