National Wildlife Week
CWF is proud to join the celebration for the 50th anniversary of Hinterland Who’s Who, a national program dedicated to providing wildlife-related educational resources to the public, with the goal of not only teaching about wildlife, but also providing an understanding of how each and every Canadian can play a part in conserving it. Beginning in 1963, Hinterland Who’s Who created a series of 60-second vignettes designed to educate the public about Canada’s native wildlife. 50 years after the appearance of the first vignette, Environment Canada and the Canadian Wildlife Federation successfully re-launched HWW in an effort to forge a connection between another generation of Canadians and the remarkable wildlife that surrounds them. To learn more and to watch the vignettes, visit hww.ca.
