Dear Friend 


Thank You, and a Look Ahead
Support from you, whether it's providing a donation, sending a letter or volunteering time, is vital to the future of our conservation work. Tis the season to say thank you, and to look ahead at what we can do together for nature. 
Here are a few highlights

Can We Count on Your Vote?
Nature Canada is at public hearings into Enbridge's proposed Northern Gateway Pipeline and we need your help to keep participating all the way to the end. Go to and vote for Nature Canada - if we receive enough votes, Mountain Equipment Co-op's The Big Wild will award us $5,000, which we'll use to attend the hearings and raise serious questions about the risks marine birds and other wildlife face from increased tanker traffic and oil spills along B.C.'s coast.
