Say No! to Drilling
This is it. This is the moment we've been waiting for!
Thanks to pressure from Nature Canada supporters like you, the government has agreed to conduct a full environmental assessment of EnCana Corporation's proposal to drill 1,275 gas wells in the Suffield National Wildlife Area. As I write, that environmental assessment is underway. Public hearings will follow, and we want to be ready.
Suffield, near Medicine Hat, Alberta, is one of the last remaining large intact pieces of unploughed prairie grassland in Canada. Home to almost 100 federally and provincially listed species at risk of extinction, Suffield represents one of the world's rarest and most endangered ecosystems.
Your special gift of $50, $100, $250, or another amount now will help Nature Canada reach our fundraising goal of $50,000 to prepare the best case on behalf of endangered animals like the Burrowing Owl, threatened species such as the (no longer) Common Nighthawk and other species at risk.
This is a precedent-setting case!No permits have ever been issued for industrial development on this scale in an NWA. Your donation will help keep it that way. In addition, your donation will help to preserve the integrity of all our National Wildlife Areas.
With hearings set to take place soon, we must act now to ensure that these endangered species are represented at the hearings. Please add your voice to those committed to preserving this rare piece of our natural heritage before it's too late.
P.S. We don't have much time...the hearings are expected to begin soon. Suffield's fragile ecosystem and the endangered animals and other species it supports are counting on us. Please make your personal gift to save Suffield today!
