Your walk could deliver BIG CHANGE for wildlife

This year the walk is all about the species we carry with us every day - the loon, polar bear, caribou and beaver – iconic Canadian species that grace our currency and remind us even the smallest steps and contributions can make a difference for Canadian wildlife.

Species At Risk Act

Species become at-risk when population levels are in danger of disappearing in the wild. Many factors contribute to a species population decline. This could be a result of human impacts such as direct mortality (such as road mortality, poaching/persecution), encroachment or alteration of their habitat, environment contaminants, and climate change; or from natural phenomena such as water level fluctuation, predation, disease and habitat changes.
