Protecting Watersheds in the 21st Century

February 8, 2018

Those of you who know me know that I’m a bit of a math and data geek, and hearing about what WWF Canada had to go through for the past four years to collect, collate data from so many different sources, to try and get a picture of something that, quite frankly, Canadians take for granted and we should know much more about, is a real challenge.

Prime Minister Trudeau issued a call to action, encouraging everyone, including various levels of government to “step up” and ensure water quality data is collected and shared.

Organizations across Canada are doing just that, building partnerships and exploring opportunities to collaborate on environmental initiatives. We share the optimism that Bruce spoke of in his opening keynote at CEGN’s Conference and believe the time for action is now — while the wind is still strongly at our backs!
