Please Contact Diana McQueen & Peter Kent To Save The Little Smoky Caribou Herd From Extinction
It is really disheartening to see what is happening to our woodland caribou in Alberta, Canada.
As an Alberta youngster in the 60's I remember trips to forested areas with my parents and I marvelled at the diversity of wildlife and the beautiful wilderness that we were blessed with. So much has changed these past fifty years. Now our wilderness lies scarred and naked and our wildlife has been swept away as we carve up our most pristine wilderness with abandon.
Some day our grandchildren and their descendents will hold us in contempt for allowing species after species to perish needlessly. We had fair warning nearly thirty years ago that we were on the path to endangering these majestic animals.
We are terrible custodians of the land we live on. Shame on us for letting this happen!
In the map below, the little green speck on the map of Alberta just to the right of Jasper Park is the last refuge left to the Little Smoky Caribou Herd. Their intactness area is under assault by our resource extraction efforts and soon the herd will be gone forever unless government leaders step in and give the herd real protection.
Please share this post with others and take a few minutes to send an email (addresses below) to Diana McQeen and Peter Kent. Let them know that as government leaders responsible for the environment they need to act now to save the Little Smoky Caribou Herd from extinction.

Minister of Environment and Sustainable Resource Development
