2013 Martha Kostuch Annual Wilderness and Wildlife Lecture

Oct 25 2013 - 6:00pm

With special guest speaker:

Lorraine Mitchelmore
President and Country Chair, Shell Canada Ltd.

Over much of the past century Alberta's natural environment has been caught in the grip of ever increasing resource extraction. Riches from Alberta's lands have economically benefited many here at home, nationally and internationally. But now there is growing recognition from within the province and from outside that Alberta cannot maintain its water and air quality, its arable soil base and its indigenous wildlife without major changes towards ecological sustainability. Alberta has literally raced into its present environmental predicament; now, in determining our future, how can AWA best bridge gaps and maintain forward momentum towards a goal of ecological sustainability? How will we best work with a variety of partners to secure a legacy of abundant native wildlife and natural wild spaces, of clean water and air, and the soil base we depend upon for food supply, all of these being integral parts of ecological stability?

Federal Government Considers Extra Protection for Grizzlies

Conservation Groups Point out Benefits of Proposed Protection
26 Sep 2013

The federal government is considering an extra layer of legal protection for the country’s grizzly bears, a move supported by three Alberta-based conservation groups, including AWA.

In 2012, Canada’s Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife (COSEWIC) recommended, for the second time in a decade, that Canada’s grizzly population be designated as “Species of Special Concern” under the Species at Risk Act (SARA). Canadians have the opportunity to comment on this proposal until October 4th, 2013. Read more »

Stop Alberta Energy Leases in Threatened Little Smoky Caribou Range

6 Feb 2013

In violation of Alberta’s 2011 woodland caribou policy that places an immediate priority on maintaining caribou habitat, Alberta Energy plans auctions of new oil and gas leases within the Little Smoky caribou range on February 7, March 7 and April 25, 2013. This herd’s habitat is already 95% disturbed, according to Environment Canada. Alberta Wilderness Association (AWA) has issued an open letter to Alberta’s Energy Minister urging him to defer these lease sales as a step towards responsible habitat management for this herd at imminent risk of local extinction.
