CPAWS has helped protect over 40 million hectares of Canada's most treasured wild places while working closely with First Nations, government, industry and non-governmental organizations.
Canada’s treasured Jasper National Park could be on its way to gaining a theme park-like attraction.
The Lower Athabasca Region is part of the Athabasca Heartland, which contains most of the last true unprotected wilderness in Alberta. The Athabasca Heartland contains Alberta Oil Sands — the world's largest energy project — as well as logging, mining and conventional oil and gas operations. It is one of the most threatened landscapes in Alberta.
In 1993, CPAWS, working with other groups, helped found the Yellowstone to Yukon (Y2Y) Conservation Initiative — an international network of groups and individuals working together to maintain and restore the unique natural heritage of the Yellowstone to Yukon region and the quality of life it affords to residents and visitors.
The Big Wild is a conservation movement that makes it easy for you to stand up for wilderness protection campaigns.
